Education standards help educators understand what students should know and be able to demonstrate by providing clear goals for student learning. The NH College and Career Ready Standards (NH CCRS) include learning goals for a variety of content areas, such as the State's newly adopted English language arts/literacy and mathematics standards. The new standards were adopted after a state-led effort referred to as the Common Core State Standards Initiative. NH CCRS include the critical skills and dispositions, or competencies, necessary for skills in careers, college, and life. See below for these and other academic standards included in the NH CCRS.
