Teacher resources for the Utah Core Standards
Utah Core Standards
The Utah Core Standards are based on the Common Core State Standards, a state-led effort adopted in 44 states to better prepare students to compete in a global economy. These standards set grade-level expectations for students, parents, and teachers.
According to the Utah State Office of Education, the standards “help Utah teachers ensure academic achievement for Utah students by defining the essential knowledge, concepts, and skills to be mastered at each grade level or within critical content areas. They are like a set of building codes. They define what students should know and do to as they move on to post-secondary training, college, or a career.”
