In 2010, the California Board of Education adopted new Common Core State Standards (CCSS), with California additions, in the subjects of Mathematics and English Language Arts.  The CCSS maintain the rigor of the 1997 standards and help ensure that students consistently receive a high-quality education, from school to school and from state to state.
