Common Core State Standards Outsourced Education Resources
46 states have adopted the Common Core State Standards providing the opportunity for sharing developed resources to be efficiently used by anyone to achieve the same common goals. These resources are the result of federal and foundation funding awards. They were developed to be useful to the goals of each state and to be shared by all CCSS adopters. It is recommended that you adopt these resources, modify the presentations as is necessary to facilitate the goals of your district and tailor the material to the teachers and students in your program.
