Common Core Standards

The state Board of Education will have an opportunity to discuss the Common Core Standards at its meeting in Chamberlain September 28. The South Dakota DOE is in support of moving forward with the Common Core State Standards Initiative. DOE is in support of “adopting” the Common Core Standards. However, the “implementation” of the Common Core is not determined. A proposed timeline of content standards and “implementation” timeline will be presented at the November 2010 BOE meeting.
