State Standards

The New Mexico Common Core State Standards (NMCCSS) were implemented in the state in the 2011-2012 school year with a goal of full implementation by 2015. The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), referred to as the NM STEM Ready Standards, were adopted by the state in 2018 with ongoing implementation in process.

Parents’ Guides to Understanding the Common Core

The National PTA created the Parents’ Guides to Student Success to help parents and families understand the Common Core State Standards and what their child should know and be able to do at each grade level. These documents are available in English and Spanish.

The Council of the Great City Schools published Parent Roadmaps to the Common Core Standards. These also provide good information about the expected knowledge and skills for each grade level.
