6.  Common Core State Standards Initiative  http://www.corestandards.org/

** For curriculum Mississippi is a Common Core State.

For situational awareness the U.S. States & Territories that have NOT adopted Common Core curriculum are: Alaska, Florida, Indiana, Minnesota, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Texas & Virginia. Education is a state right, therefore each State is permitted to determine curriculum content, assessment standards, teacher qualifications, and high school graduation requirements. Parents/Guardians need to bear in mind that while the Department of Defense generally endorsed Common Core curriculum standards because it was seen as one way to ease transitions for military-connected students DoDEA is not a state. Thus the extent to which Department of Defense Educational Activity schools utilize Common Core or adhere to the Military Interstate Compact Agreement MIC3 varies.
