Common Core State Standards Initiative
Since the spring of 2009, Massachusetts, along with 47 other states, the
District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands, has supported
the development of Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts
We are now soliciting feedback on the Common Core State Standards
developed by the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief
State School Officers and released on June 2, 2010. Our goal is to
gather statewide impressions of the similarities and differences between
our current Massachusetts standards and the Common Core State Standards.
You can read more about the development process at www.corestandards.org
In July 2010, the Massachusetts Board of Elementary and Secondary
Education is scheduled to vote on whether to adopt the Common Core State
Standards. To inform the Board's decision, the Department is conducting
a survey in order to gather public comment on how the Common Core
Standards compare with Massachusetts' current standards. This survey is
located at: Common Core State Standards Survey
and will be available until July 2, 2010. Links to the current
Massachusetts standards and the Common Core State Standards are
available at: http://www.doe.mass.edu/candi/commoncore/. We appreciate
your filling out this brief survey, which should take 10 to 15 minutes
