Common Core State Standards
Mississippi has adopted the national Common Core State Standards for its K–12 curriculum. Children in Mississippi's public schools 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.
In an effort to help our parents understand Common Core, Jackson Public Schools has added a Common Core Resources for Parents page. The information includes information about what students should learn at each grade in order to be prepared for college and careers based on Common Core.
