In July 2010, The Maine State Board of Education adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) which are a national set of learning expectations for college and career success that were developed by teachers, parents, school administrators and education experts. Maine is one of forty-six states that have adopted these. These adopted standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn K-12 in math and language arts.
