The Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) is adopting the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) into its curriculum, instruction, and assessment programs. The CCSS Initiative began more than two years ago as a collaboration between state governors and education leaders to introduce consistency in education systems across the nation. Currently, CCSS are finalized in the English Language Arts and Mathematics content areas. DoDEA will begin work on adopting the standards in these two areas and will continue to adopt the CCSS in Science as they are approved and become available. For more information on the new standards, visit the Common Core State Standards Initiative website.
