How did the Common Core State Standards impact the curriculum review process?

Initially, teacher teams surveyed a variety of national, state and local standards. Mathematics and English language arts teacher teams also reviewed the Common Core State Standards. When sample test items from the newly developed Next Generation Assessments (new MAP tests) were released in 2012, a greater level of rigor and detail was revealed. Mathematics and English language arts teams revisited the Common Core State Standards to ensure a strong alignment to the district curriculum.
