Alabama Common Core Standards were adopted November 18, 2010 by the Alabama State Board of Education with full implementation in the 2013-14 school year. In May of 2017 a State Senate committee passed a bill that would end the use of Common Core in Alabama schools. Although in August of 2017 members of the state's board of education decided the best time to address the standards would be as part of the normal standards-revision process due in 2018-19 and 2019-20.

Assessment Information:

The Alabama Course of Study Committees for English Language Arts and Mathematics recommended to the Alabama State Board of Education adoption of 100 percent of the Common Core State Standards with additional Alabama-specific standards in both content areas. As is the case with all Alabama standards and courses of study, Local Education Agencies (LEAs) may add additional content standards as determined and approved by their local board(s) of education without restriction.
