Common Core State Standards

Mississippi is in the process of fully adopting and using the national Common Core State Standards for its K-12 curriculum. Our children in Mississippi will be learning the same curriculum standards as students in nearly all other states, and our children will be tested on the same curriculum as well.

The Jackson Public School District is making the transition towards full implementation on the standards by 2014-2015. The National PTA has developed a series of guides to student success based on Common Core State Standards. The guides offer clear information and expectations for what students should learn at each grade in order to be prepared for college and career.
