All secondary mathematics teachers and all elementary teachers have received the initial program training and professional development. A continued professional learning plan is in place for all teachers of mathematics in order to support program implementation and classroom instruction.
The New California Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.
