Common Core Standards

The West Virginia Board of Education approved the Common Core State Standards for English and Mathematics.

West Virginia participated in the Common Core State Standards Initiative to establish consistent and clear education standards for English/language arts and mathematics.

The initiative respects the unique nature of every state, while acknowledging a shared national commitment to high classroom standards for all students in kindergarten through high school.

The common core standards focus on fewer concepts while stressing deeper learning and understanding, and are part of an overall drive to better prepare today's students for college or careers.
