Abstract: We describe the u′g′r′i′z′ standard star system developed to support the Sloan Digital Sky Survey and how it is used. Issues related to the SDSS will be discussed including; the offset between u′g′r′i′z′ and ugriz, the offset to the AB system, and the overall calibration of the SDSS. We will describe the northern hemisphere primary standard system, the southern hemisphere extension, and the current observational program designed to enhance the system.
