Common Core Georgia Performance Standards
Atlanta Public Schools has implemented Common Core Georgia Performance Standards to provide students with rigorous instructional programs that foster student success in school and life. Today’s and tomorrow’s jobs value postsecondary and training more than ever. Americans without the requisite knowledge and skills will struggle to access good jobs in the increasingly competitive global economy.
The Common Core Standards are K – 12 academic standards in mathematics and English language arts/literacy. They are aligned to the expectations of two – and four – year colleges and have been internationally benchmarked.
The Common Core will ensure that teachers teach students and students learn the knowledge and skills to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow, including communication skills, perseverance in problem solving, technical reading and writing, literacy across disciplines, and the most important mathematical skills.
