Louisiana’s Implementation of Common Core State Standards
With the aim of providing educators and parents with a common understanding of what students are expected to learn and know, the Common Core State Standards are based on previous input from higher education leaders and employers as well as the most effective models in the country and across the world. Designed in collaboration with teachers and school administrators, the standards define the knowledge and skills students should acquire throughout their K-12 education careers in order to graduate from high school prepared to succeed in their post-secondary education and workforce pursuits. In Louisiana, the new standards will be fully implemented in the 2014-2015 school year”
