Timeline for Common Core State Standards Implementation

Like our counterparts nationwide, DoDEA is taking thoughtful, measured steps to integrate the Common Core State Standards into our existing curriculum, instruction and assessment framework. 

Our goal is to provide a smooth transition from current academic standards to the Common Core State Standards in our classrooms across the world. As we focus on Continuous School Improvement, the Common Core State Standards will be integrated to create more student-centered learning opportunities and environments in our schools. 

DoDEA's plan is to continue this approach as we review and adopt common standards in other content areas such as science and social studies.
