Alabama Common Core Standards

  • On November 18, 2010, Alabama joined a number of other states, the District of Columbia, and the Virgin Islands in adopting the Common Core State Standards in mathematics and English language arts, with the current total now having reached 45. The adoption of internationally benchmarked Common Core State Standards along with selected Alabama standards creates a set of standards that will prepare students for a successful future in the ever-expanding global environment.

    The Common Core State Standards Initiative is a state-led effort coordinated by the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers. The standards were developed in collaboration with teachers, school administrators, state officials, and other experts to provide a clear and consistent framework to prepare students for college and the workforce.
    “Incorporating the Common Core Standards into our already highly regarded content standards brings a new level of rigor and perceptual understanding to teaching and learning.” Dr. Tommy Bice, Alabama Superintendent of Education
