Times-Herald staff report/

The Benicia school board will consider Thursday adopting the national “Common Core Standards.”The standards, led by state organizations, set common goals and assessments for K-12 education that focus on getting students ready for college and the workforce.

All but a handful of states have adopted the standards, with the California state board of education approving them last year after developing a set of standards based on the national Common Core Standards.

State officials expect full implementation by the 2014-2015 school year.

The Benicia school board must approve the standards before the district can begin implementation.

The board also will hear a report about the district’s finances as the district prepares to file its first interim report.

Benicia, like all California public districts, must prepare for mid-year cuts triggered by a shortfall in forecasted state revenue.

The board meets at 7 p.m. — following a 5:45 p.m. closed session — at district offices, 350 East K St.
