Illinois is one of 45 states that are replacing their state learning standards with the new Common Core State Standards for learning. A consortium of state education and business leaders developed the Common Core standards to provide a more rigorous and uniform set of academic expectations nationwide. Individual states and school districts then decide how best to implement the standards, and create their own curriculums to reach the new academic targets.
Last year, District 202 implemented the CCSS math standards. This year, we are implementing the English Language Arts standards.
