The CDE currently offers a number of communication resources to keep the field informed about the implementation of the new standards. For example, the CDE Common Core State Standards Resources Web page located at provides links to the standards and general overviews for each content area, curriculum tools and documents, and webinars and presentations about the CCSS. In addition, the CDE SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium Web page located at provides information regarding California’s participation as a governing state in the SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium. As part of the CCSS listserv, you will be notified whenever either web page is updated with new references, resources, or requests for input and collaboration from the field.

Thank you in advance for your continued interest and involvement as we prepare students for a globalized society utilizing the 21st century skills reflected in the CCSS.
