NYS P-12 Common Core Learning Standards
Implementation of the NYS P-12 Common Core Learning Standards will begin in all schools in 2011-12. The reporting of state assessment results for 2011-12 will include performance mapped to both the existing NYS standards and the new NYS standards (inclusive of the Common Core). In school year 2012-13, classroom instruction is expected to be fully aligned to the new standards. Assessments that year will test achievement of the New York State P-12 Common Core Learning Standards for English Language Arts & Literacy and Mathematics. The P-12 ELA & Literacy and Mathematics curriculum models will be created to facilitate student achievement of the new P-12 standards and are scheduled to be available to schools during the school year 2012-13.
