A collaborative effort to support higher education engagement in the implementation of the Common Core State Standards.
The American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU), the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), and the State Higher Education Executive Officers (SHEEO) have formed a partnership to promote broad implementation of Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in Mathematics and English language arts. The three organizations recognize that collaboration is essential to effective implementation of the CCSS. 
The Common Core State Standards were developed by CCSSO and the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices and have been formally adopted by over 40 states and territories.  These new K-12 academic standards in English-language arts and mathematics are designed to help students be college- and career-ready by the end of the 12th grade.
The AASCU/CCSSO/SHEEO partnership will focus on four major areas of work: facilitating meaningful dialogue on implementing CCSS among state and local education leaders; identifying strategies to improve college readiness; working with in-service high school teachers to identify and address existing problem areas in preparing high school graduates to be ready for college-level work; and incorporating the new common core standards across teacher preparation programs.
