California State Standards / Common Core State Standards

Prepare students for college, career, and civic life


The California State Standards define the knowledge, concepts, and skills that students should learn at every grade level. These standards are designed to encourage the highest levels of student achievement, and prepare students for college, career, and citizenship in our 21st century global economy.

LACOE supports districts, schools, and communities in planning instructional programs that teach California State Standards and support student success.
