California State Standards (Resources/Guides)

Parent Guides to the Common Core State Standards:
The Saugus Union School District bases instruction on Standards for each academic curricular area. We are currently transitioning from the California State Standards in English Language Arts and Mathematics to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).  We continue to teach the California Standards in Social Studies and Science. 

Educational standards describe what students should know and be able to do in each subject in each grade. In California, the State Board of Education decides on the standards for all students, from kindergarten through high school.  Since 2010, 45 states have adopted the same standards for English and math. These standards are called the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Having the same standards helps all students get a good education, even if they change schools or move to a different state. Teachers, parents, and education experts designed the standards to prepare students for success in college and the workplace.
