The Common Core ELA Learning Standards for High School
The Common Core Learning Standards define the knowledge and skills students should have within their K-12 education careers so that they will graduate high school able to succeed in entry-level, credit-bearing academic college courses and/or in workforce training programs." Starting in the 2012-2013 school year, all New York State Testing will be based on the new standards. The standards are not curricula but rather, they outline what students must be able to do as a result of the development and delivery of cohesive and coherent units of study, by the end of each instructional year.

The CCLS set high expectations for all students, place heavy emphasis on critical thinking and real world applications and help to develop uniformity and rigor across and within American schools.
