The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) were developed through a
state-led initiative to establish consistent and clear education
standards for English-language arts and mathematics that would better
prepare students for success in the competitive global economy.
Bill 1 from the fifth Extraordinary Session (SB X5 1) created the
Academic Content Standards Commission (ACSC). The duty of the ACSC was
to develop and recommend academic content standards to the SBE.
The purpose of this web page is to provide teachers, administrators
and parents information, resources and responses to frequently asked
questions about the new academic content standards adopted by the State
Board of Education on August 2, 2010.
