Common Core Standards Released

June 2, 2010

On June 2, 2010, the National Governor’s Association and the Council of Chief State Schools Officers released the Common Core Standards in English Language Arts and Mathematics. A website has been established that includes comprehensive documentation supporting the Common Core Standards. You can access these resources on the Common Core Standards website.

You can directly access the Common Core Standards and other supporting documents at the following websites:

  1. ELA Standards Link

  2. Math Standards Link

  3. Validation Committee Report

  4. Summary of Public Feedback on the Standards: Nearly 10,000 individual online surveys were completed and submitted. Ninety-two percent of the respondents identified themselves as representing the opinions of an individual rather than a group or organization. Every state and territory is represented in the feedback:

The North Dakota Department of Public Instruction will conduct a review of the Common Core Standards from June 2010 to January 2011 for the purpose of setting the state’s next content standards in English Language Arts and Mathematics. This review process will be conducted by committees of statewide education stakeholders, including K-12 and higher education educators. The Department will post all drafts of these forthcoming content standards on the Department’s standards website.
