Common Core State Standards Toolkit

CCSS Toolkit

What are the Common Core State Standards and what do they mean for Oregon?

Adopted by over 45 states in the U.S., the Common Core State Standards are a set of shared K-12 learning expectations for students in English-language arts and mathematics. These two new sets of content standards replace Oregon’s current standards in English language arts and mathematics. While the new standards are similar in ways to Oregon’s current standards, some content has been shifted and the level of rigor has increased to ensure college and career readiness at the end of high school.

Purpose of the Toolkit

Teachers, parents, school and district administrators, and most importantly, students, need to be prepared for the implementation of the Common Core State Standards. This toolkit is designed to provide you with the tools you need to get started. The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) Toolkit is a process and resource guide to

How to Use the Toolkit

The toolkit is organized by audience and uses a sequential process. You may revisit prior steps or skip steps as you develop your plan. The guidance included in the Toolkit will evolve over time and is not intended as a list of requirements to follow, nor is it intended to describe everything that needs to be done to support student success.

On-going Effort

This is a work in progress that brings together a tremendous amount of knowledge and resources from ODE, Oregon school districts, ESDs, COSA, OSBA, and other CCSS states into a single website. Oregon educators are encouraged to continue to contribute as we strive to improve the Toolkit. Please email Sarah Martin eMail for more information if you have materials or resources you are interested in contributing. CCSS Logo
