RIDE, Office of Instruction, Assessment and Curriculum, Common Core Standards instruction/commoncore.aspx

Provides background information and links for Rhode Island's transition to statewide Common Core State Standards implementation. 

The Common Core State Standards Initiative developed instructional standards in Mathematics and English Language Arts only.  The Common Core State Standards in Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science and Technical Subjects, 6-12 refers specifically to the literacy standards students should have instructionally within these content classrooms. They do not replace content standards.  Therefore, our NECAP Science assessment and Science Grade Span Expectations (GSEs) remain in effect.


AskRI is the online portal for all services of the Statewide Reference Resource Center at Providence Community Library. Coordination of and funding for statewide databases is provided by the State of Rhode Island via the Office of Library and Information Services with a funding contribution from Ocean State Libraries for the purchase of EBSCO products and AtoZ Databases; additional funding for databases is provided through the federal Library Services and Technology Act administered by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
