Common Core State Standards
New Mexico is one of 46 states that have adopted a new set of academic standards for English Language Arts and Mathematics known as the Common Core State Standards. These standards include a strategic progression of skills for all students at all grade levels that clearly define what students should know and be able to do at each grade level. The CCSS will be in full implementation in all schools and all grades in Rio Rancho by 2014.
