AVID and the Common Core
An introduction to the California Common Core
State Standards and how AVID Strategies support
them.

AVID and the Common Core
AVID’s mission is to
close the achievement
gap by preparing all
students for college
readiness and
success in a global
society.
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.
Introduction to Common Core
•
•
•
The Common Core Standards (CCS) were
developed by the Council of Chief State School
Officers and the National Governor’s Association
Center for Best Practices, and were formally
released on June 2, 2010.
The focus of the CCS is to guarantee that all
students are college and career ready as they exit
from high school.
The committee determined what a graduate would
need to be considered “College Ready” and then
backwards mapped it to kindergarten.
What’s Different
“These Standards are not intended to be new
names for old ways of doing business. They are
a call to take the next step. It is time for states
to work together to build on lessons learned
from two decades of standards based reforms.
It is time to recognize that standards are not
just promises to our children, but promises we
intend to keep.” — CCSS (2010, p. 5)

What Are the Benefits of the CCS?




Internationally benchmarked.
Student expectations are clear to parents,
teachers, and the general public.
Allows for collaboration with other states
on best practices, instructional materials,
and professional development.
Reduces costs to the state.
Overarching Goals for K-12 CCS
Ensure that our students are:
• Meeting college and work expectations.
• Prepared to succeed in our global economy and
society.
• Provided with rigorous content and applications
of higher knowledge through higher order
thinking skills.
California’s Additional 15%
•
•
For California, 85% of the standards
recommendation must be the CCS.
15% could be additional standards added by
California to ensure the rigor.
California’s Additional 15%
Based on the following criteria:
 Substantively enhance.
 Address a perceived gap.
 Be defensible to classroom practitioners.
 Keep the original standard intact.
 Ensure the rigor of California’s existing
standards is maintained.

Partner Dialogue
If a teacher asks you what is the difference
between our California standards and the
Common Core standards – the benefits,
goals, and implications, what would you say?
