Arizona's College and Career Ready Standards
Arizona's Common Core State Standards
The Common Core State Standards Initiative is a state-led effort coordinated by the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA Center) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO). The standards were developed in collaboration with teachers, school administrators, and experts, to provide a clear and consistent framework to prepare our children for college and the workforce.
When Arizona adopted these standards in English Language Arts and Mathematics, the documents became known as Arizona's Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics.
In September 2013 the official name of Arizona's State Standards was changed to Arizona's College and Career Ready Standards (click here for more more information).
