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
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
students.
   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.
