New York State adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) on July 19th, 2010, with the understanding that New York may add some additional P-12 expectations (up to 15%, as needed). The Board of Regents will review the recommended additions in January 2011 and decide if they will approve the additions.

Librarians should look at and become familiar with the Common Core State Standards to understand how they can support these standards in their building(s).

Many links about the CCSS have been added to the sunnydeys delicious account listed on the “Resources” page of this blog.
