Common Core State Standards in Math and ELA
On January 10th, 2011, the Board of Regents approved the recommended additions to the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts & Literacy and Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, plus a new set of Prekindergarten Standards.
Implementation of the New York State Common Core Learning Standards will begin in all schools in 2011-12. The reporting of state assessment results for 2011-12 will include performance mapped to both the existing NYS standards and the new NYS standards (inclusive of the Common Core). In school year 2012-13, classroom instruction is expected to be fully aligned to the new standards. Assessments that year will test achievement of the New York State P-12 Common Core Learning Standards for English Language Arts & Literacy and Mathematics.
