Arizona’s College and Career Ready Standards 

What are Arizona’s College and Career Ready Standards (AZCCRS)?
Not to be confused with curriculum, which is adopted at the school district level, they are a set of benchmarks that all Arizona children must meet as they move through the K-12 school system. Arizona joined with 46 other states to create the next generation of K-12 standards in English language arts and literacy in history/social studies, science, and technical subjects, and mathematics. These standards provide a consistent framework to prepare students for success in college and/or the 21st century workplace. The Arizona State Board of Education adopted AZCCRS on June 28, 2010.



Spotlight on the Common Core State Standards: 
What Do Parents Need to Know?

What do parents need to know about the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)? How will they affect teaching and assessing mathematics and English language arts? What are the benefits, and what can parents do to prepare for the CCSS? These and other questions are answered in the March 2011 "Spotlight on the Common Core State Standards"—a series published by Education Northwest to keep regional stakeholders informed about this important initiative.
