The Long Beach Unified School District has launched a Common Core Standards website providing resources for parents, teachers and students.
Teachers, parents, school administrators and experts across the nation have come together to establish a single set of clear educational standards for kindergarten through 12th grade in English and math. Most states, including California, have voluntarily adopted these Common Core Standards. The standards are designed to make sure that students graduate from high school prepared for college and careers. Benchmarked against international standards and top-performing countries, the Common Core Standards also will help students to succeed in a global economy.
