Arizona’s College and Career Ready Standards give Arizona students the skills they need to be successful in life. Simply put, these standards are a set of expectations placed on students to ensure that when they leave the classroom they are prepared to become informed, productive members of society. Upon graduation, these students will be ready to not only compete, but excel in a competitive job market.
English Language Arts The new standards for English language arts articulate rigorous grade-level expectations in the areas of speaking, listening, reading, and writing to prepare all students to be college and career ready.
Mathematics The new standards focus deeply on the major mathematical work of each grade so that students can gain strong foundations in solid conceptual understandings, procedural skills and fluency, and the ability to apply the mathematics they know to solve problems inside and outside the classroom.
Stand for Children Stand for Children Arizona believes all children deserve access to an excellent education that prepares them for college and careers in the 21st century.
