California State Board of Education, Standards & Frameworks

Standards and Frameworks can be described in three categories:  Content standards, Common Core State Standards and Curriculum Frameworks.

Information on the College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Framework for Social Studies State Standards is available on the National Council for the Social Studies website

Content standards were designed to encourage the highest achievement of every student, by defining the knowledge, concepts, and skills that students should acquire at each grade level.

Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in English-language arts and mathematics were adopted by the State Board of Education (SBE) on August 2, 2010.
