It looks like our state adopted this in 2010 but honestly, the standards don't seem any different from what our state was already requiring. Algebra has been an 8th grade standard in our state since 1997for example and so there is really no transition that needs to happen in that reguard. It's hard for me to get a sense just reading the website as to the key differences in the common core language arts curriculum but superficially, doesn't seem different at all. If you look up your state, they do have a section on transition and how it's to be played out. Typically, these sorts of transitions take place over several years.
The link isn't opening for me right now, but I will look at it when I get home. Honestly, if this is what I think it is, Texas is one of only 2 or 3 states that is opting out of the core standards alignment.
Yep, that's the one. Wow, it's scary what you say about your dd and the move. It would be nice to have some common standards, especially with the society as mobile as it is.

My state also says it's adopted it, but it is very vague about the transition. I
I don't think you'll have to worry about that sort of change. It's not actually a national curriculum... just a goal list for math and language arts. It doesn't dictate how a state, district or school should reach these goals. It doesn't require the use of particular curriculum or teaching styles. It specifically says "Common standards will not prevent different levels of achievement among students" and addresses ELL kids and students with disabilities. It's just an attempt to line up expectations from state to state and to make our standards closer to international standards.
I looked at the press release put out by the state I lived in until this year.
