CCSS and Students with Disabilities

CCSSThe Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for English Language Arts & Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects and Mathematics were adopted by the Oregon State Board of Education on October 28, 2010. These standards are the foundation of the K-12 Oregon Diploma. Moving to common standards in two content areas represents a major change for Oregon. ODE and its educational partners are committed to providing educators with the tools they need to understand and implement the CCSS.

Meeting the Needs of Students with Disabilities
Students with disabilities should be challenged to excel within the general curriculum and be prepared for success in their post-school lives. The implementation of the Common Core Standards provides an historic opportunity to improve collaborative practices and access to rigorous academic content for students with disabilities. The resources listed on these pages are intended to support educators and stakeholders to better understand how these standards integrate into special education processes.
