Preparing our state's K-12 students for the rigors of a college education through Nevada's adoption of the Common Core State Standards (also known as the Nevada Academic Content Standards) is a top priority for NSHE and our partners in the Nevada Department of Education and Nevada Board of Education. They have launched a new initiative, Nevada Ready!, to raise awareness of our state's public school standards. We are in full support of these standards that will increase our students' knowledge to be college and career ready.
