          The CCGPS are
   Aligned with expectations for college and
    career success.
   Consistent across all states, so that students
    are not taught to a lower standard just
    because of where they live.
   Realistic, for effective use in the classroom.
   Evidence and research-based.
         GPS versus CCGPS
   Since Georgia had already developed rigorous college
    and career ready standards, there are many elements
    of the Georgia Performance Standards found in the
    Common Core Standards.
   Therefore, the use of the new standards in Georgia
    will not be a drastic change for either teachers or
   The underlying purpose of the CCGS is to build on
    the strength of current state standards to prepare
    students to succeed in college English and math
    without the need for remediation.
