At Cowan, we implement the current Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Our curriculum aligns with these state standards and reflects our commitment to best prepare our students for the 21st century.
The State Board of California adopted the nationalized Common Core standards in 2010 with a systematic roll out and implementation occurring in the subsequent years. These standards describe the basis for all students' content knowledge, as well as, specifies guidelines for student performance abilities. They apply to grades K-12 and encompass all academic domains, including English Language Arts, Mathematics, History & Social Science, and Science & Technical Sciences.
