West Virginia Common Core State Standards were formally adopted June 2, 2010, by the West Virginia Board of Education with full implementation in the 2014-2015 school year. Bills were filed to delay implementation until 2016 and in December 2015, the Board of Education voted unanimously to repeal the state’s Common Core-based education standards and replaced it with a set called the West Virginia College and Career Ready Standards.
