Welcome to CCSS




CCSS is a non-profit professional organization serving both public and private school educators, and is the leading voice for quality social studies education in California. CCSS promotes and supports social studies education through service, advocacy and leadership development. We are collectively committed to the strengthening and teaching of the social studies discipline though professional development, public awareness and collaboration at local, state and national levels.

"We want our students to understand the value, the importance, and the fragility of democratic institutions. . . to develop a keen sense of ethics and citizenship, and to care deeply about the quality of life in their community, their nation and their world."
