On October 28, 2010, the State Board of Education adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), which represent K-12 learning expectations for students in English-language arts and mathematics. The Common Core State Standards are the foundation of the Oregon Diploma. They reflect the same high academic expectations for all students, and have embedded in them the Essential Skills of reading, writing, and applying mathematics.

Seeking Nominations for the 2019-21 content panel:
The Oregon Department of Education is seeking panelists to
serve on the 2019-21 math content panel that would be responsible for the
review and revision of our state mathematics standards. The objective will be
to establish two content panels. One panel will be focused on the K-8 standards
and connections to early childhood math expectations. A second panel will be focused on high school standards, secondary pathways, and connections to post-secondary math courses. We will have limited funds to bring a group of educators together for three
in-person meetings between August 2019-August 2020, but there will also be
opportunities to engage in this work virtually only though online meetings and
documents. You can read more details and some questions and answers within the
