Renton readies for Common Core State Standards
Washington state joins more than 40 other states in the nation in the move to Common Core State Standards, a new set of educational benchmarks for kindergarten through high school that will prepare students for college and careers, and designed to turn them into big thinkers who can compete in the global job market.

Common Core was developed by education experts from 45 states and go deeper into key concepts in math and English language arts. The standards require a practical, real-life application of knowledge that prepares students for success in college, work and life.

Parents can see, by grade level, what their child will learn using the new Common Core State Standards here.

What are the Common Core Standards?
The Common Core State Standards, or “Common Core,” are academic learning goals for grades K-12 in math and English language arts. The Common Core, which replaces Washington’s learning standards in math, reading, communication and writing, sets goals or standards that focus on deeper understanding of basic subjects in order to better prepare students for success in college, work, and life.
