Our region's success requires that our students have the necessary skills to compete and thrive in the global economy. The new Common Core State Standards are designed to do just that by building students' critical thinking and communication skills, sparking their curiosity and making learning relevant in the real world.
Silicon Valley Community Foundation is leading the Silicon Valley Common Core Initiative. We are investing in innovative school district collaboratives and bringing together top educational funders to join this effort. We are delivering valuable information and resources to our community to foster discussions about the opportunities these standards present for our students.
