Part of SB 1
KCAS are based on the National Standards
Focus on college/career readiness
Adopted by 34 states
Assessment begins 2011-2012
Addresses English/Language Arts and Math
E/LA also includes Literacy Standards for
History/Social Studies, Science and
Technical Subjects
English/Language Arts
 Anchor Standards – These ‘anchors’ define general, crossdisciplinary expectations that indicate readiness to enter
college/workforce. There are 4 sets of ‘anchors’ which will be
the same K – 12:
- Reading
- Writing
- Language
- Speaking/Listening
 Strands – The ‘anchors’ are divided into “strands” (i.e. Key
Ideas and Details under Reading).
 Grade Specific Standards – These ‘standards’ define endof-year expectations designed to guide student progression.
 Grade Bands – ‘Standards’ are divided into individual grade
‘bands’ (grades K-8) and two years bands for high schools
(grades 9 -12).
 Appendices – These include exemplar texts, performance
tasks and student work.
“The focus of the new standards is on
RESULTS rather than MEANS.”

Math
 Mathematical Practices – describe varieties of expertise
that mathematic educators at all levels should seek to
develop.
 Domains – overarching concepts and topics:
(e.g. Numbers and Operations in Base 10)
 Clusters – groups of related standards within each
Domain:
(e.g. Use place value understanding and properties of
operations to perform multi-digit arithmetic.)
 Standards – define what students should understand/be
able to do:
(e.g. Use place value understanding to round whole
numbers to the nearest 10 or 100.)

Future Considerations
 How does Everyday Math align with the KCAS?
 How does ACT Quality Core align with the KCAS?
 How does the Springboard Curriculum align with
the KCAS?
 When will we receive the standards for Science
and Social Studies?
 How can the related arts support the KCAS?
 How do we provide a bridge for students as we
implement the new standards?
 How do we provide support to struggling
students?
Resources
New standards and other
resources are posted on KDE
website.
Also see www.commoncore.org
from the Common Core
Curriculum Mapping Project for
units that address each standard.
