Common Core

Common Core

The goal of the Common Core State Standards is to provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers.

Common Core Resources

A wide variety of resources related to the implementation of Common Core State Standards.


The CCLEAR Cadre is a select group of DSEA members who have committed to an in-depth training program whose goal is to provide assistance to all teachers tasked with implementation of the Common Core State Standards.

"CCLEAR" stands for Common Core Leaders Educating and Advocating for Reform.  The program is funded through an NEA organizing grant and began to take shape in the Fall of 2013.

The following links provide a expansive amount of information related to Common Core State Standards.  We have included videos from educators, lists for how "Get Common Core Right", and even information for how families and educators can work together on the transition to Common Core State Standards.
