Region:

Southeast

Description:

This study, Plans to adopt and implement Common Core State Standards in the Southeast Region states, produced by the 2006–2011 REL Southeast at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro examines the processes for adopting and implementing the common standards and aligning assessment programs to the common standards in the Southeast Region states (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, and South Carolina). The Common Core State Standards Initiative is a state-led effort to establish a common set of expectations for what K–12 students are expected to know and be able to do in English language arts and math. The Common Core State Standards were released in June 2010. As of November 2011, 45 states, the District of Columbia, and two territories have adopted the standards and were planning to implement them and align assessments to them.
