Common Core State Standards
Implementation Support at Higher-Performing High Schools
A fall 2011 study surveyed teachers and administrators from higher-performing high schools and assessed educators opinions of the level of support and guidance they are receiving for implementing the Common Core State Standards.
The results suggest that district-level guidance for implementing the Standards has exceeded state-level guidance. Few educators at higher-performing high schools (18%) believe that adequate funding is available to their district to implement all aspects of the Standards.

|Adequate funding is available to our district to implement all aspects of the Common Core State Standards.||18%||23%||59%|
Note: Data come from 272 educators from 63 high-performing high schools across 25 states. Schools were selected based on students growth towards college and career readiness or based on improvement in average ACT scores over time.
