To ensure all students graduate collect and career ready - prepared to contribute cooperate, compete and thrive in the modern global community and workforce - the Kent School District will embrace new, demanding Common Core State Standards.The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are new learning targets for students in English Language Arts and Mathematics. The standards provide educators, students, and families consistent, clear statements of what students need to learn to be prepared for college and career – to be successfully prepared for their futures!
The CCSS were developed with input from teachers, parents, school administrators, college educators, and content experts from around the country under the leadership of the nation’s governors and state education leaders. They have been voluntarily adopted by 45 states including Washington which will raise academic standards across our country and allow comparison of student performance state to state.
