Common Core State Standards
High School Mathematics Update NEW!
The PARCC assessment, which is aligned to the Common Core State Standards and will be implemented in the 2014-15 school year, will have assessment options for both the traditional and integrated pathways for high school mathematics. In the traditional pathway, PARCC will assess students in the sequence Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II. In the integrated pathway, PARCC will assess students in the sequence Math I, Math II, Math III. Algebra II and Math III are the final courses in each pathway that PARCC will assess to determine college and career readiness. Some districts have expressed interest in exploring the integrated pathway. At the State Board of Education meeting in July, the standards in the integrated and traditional pathways were approved on first read. Districts will have the choice of which pathway to implement and assess beginning in the 2014-15 school year. The department will continue to gather information about the implications of the integrated pathway for accountability and value-added scores. We look forward to having conversations with districts interested in exploring the integrated pathway.

into Dropped content, Focus content, and Other content. The Common Core
State Standards are grouped into Focus content (four Focus Clusters per
grade level) and Other/Supporting content. The rows of the tables show
the Common Core State Standards and related SPIs.
