Resource Title California Common Core State Standards Support Materials

This resource consists of a variety of tools and orientation materials to help California educators become familiar with the California Common Core State Standards (CCCSS) and start to plan for their implementation. On August 2, 2010, the California State Board of Education adopted the California Common Core Standards. These standards are rigorous grade level expectations for K-12 English language arts and mathematics that prepare all students to be college and career ready. They are based on the Common Core State Standards (see Common Core State Standards), with the addition of up to 15% to address any perceived gaps and to insure that the rigor of California’s existing standards are maintained. The CCCSS orientation materials include usable PowerPoint presentations with notes and documents that provide a general overview of the English language arts and mathematics standards, snapshots and exemplars of the standards for administrators, overviews for teachers, a handbook for parents, information on the international benchmarking of the Common Core State Standards, and other useful support material. Also included are a videocast of the overview of the standards and a link to assessment information. Additional support materials related to implementing the Common Core Standards is available at
