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.
