Arizona Academic Standards

Common Core State Standards are a coherent progression of learning expectations in English language arts and mathematics designed to prepare K-12 students for college and career success.

Move on When Reading: Beginning in the school year 2013-2014, Arizona will implement new policy that will create multiple opportunities for 3rd grade students to master reading at the grade level. Students who score Falls Far Below on the AIMS reading test may be retained in the 3rd grade to meet the rigorous reading standards set forth in the Arizona English Language Arts Standards.

Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is a consortium of states working together to develop a common set of K-12 assessments in English and math anchored in what it takes to be ready for college and careers.
