Following the adoption of the Common Core Standards, the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) launched a broad-based, yearlong process to analyze the new Standards and compare the alignment of the existing State Curriculum to the Common Core State Standards. Using only the "excellent" matches in each grade level, development of the new Maryland Common Core Curriculum Frameworks new webpage icon began. Although the Common Core State Standards did not include Pre-K, Maryland educators created standards and developed the essential skills and knowledge to serve these students, as well.

The Maryland Common Core Curriculum Frameworks in English/Language Arts pdf doc icon and Mathematics pdf doc icon define the essential skills and knowledge that students need to know and be able to do in order to achieve the academic goals of the Common Core State Standards. The Frameworks are the foundation of Maryland's new Curriculum and will guide the development of curriculum resources.

Hundreds of classroom educators, instructional leaders, administrators and higher education representatives continue to assist State officials in developing the new Maryland Common Core State Curriculum, which will be implemented in Maryland schools in the 2013-2014 school year.
