Washington State Learning Standards

Kids in school

Formerly Common Core State Standards

Basic education in Washington state is defined by the Legislature (RCW 28A.150.210). As required by state law, OSPI develops the state's learning standards (RCW 28A.655.070) and oversees the assessment of the learning standards for state and federal accountability purposes. Learning standards define what all students need to know and be able to do at each grade level.
