“The Arizona Common Core Standards is a state
and national initiative to get all students working
on the same curricula, calendared for learning, at
the same time. Students moving from state to
state, or from one district or school to another
will be afforded a more consistent transition into
their learning environment.
The Arizona Common Core Standards also
require students to think more critically. Having
the ability to think, re-think and think again, to
solve real world problems, is critical for
Dan Brown, MEd
life. This skill will be used to process
Arizona Department of Education
information at a higher level. In today’s world,
Deputy Associate Superintendent
we can’t be expected to know all that there is to
School Improvement and Implementation know. Yet understanding the process for finding
information through analyzing, synthesizing and
seeing a venue for resolution will be critical.”

Introduction:
The Arizona Legislature and the Arizona Department of Education recognized the critical
economic and social need for a literate workforce and fully functioning community members
in order to meet the demands of a new world global economy.
Arizona Department of Education committed to revolutionizing education by:
1. PREPARING students with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in the jobs
of today and tomorrow;
2. TRANSFORMING what students learn and how they are taught through real-world
experiences and higher expectations; and
3. MEETING employer demands for a highly skilled, adaptable workforce.

Introduction (cont.):
TO ACCOMPLISH THIS, the Arizona Department of Education adopted Arizona’s
Common Core Standards that will prepare today’s students for global competition in
tomorrow’s careers in the following ways:
1. INCREASING educator effectiveness through continuous professional development
and the professional support (resources and technology) they need to substantially
increase student learning;
2. ESTABLISHING collaborative partnerships with key education stakeholders in
Arizona and across the nation to implement transformative change; and
3. REMOVING obstacles and barriers to implement transformative change.

 Why the Need for the Arizona Common Core Standards?
 1.
Today’s workplace is far different than it was even ten years ago.
 2.
Unlike past generations, teachers today must prepare students for a world of
possibilities that may not even currently exist.
 3.
The workforce of tomorrow must be flexible, motivated, and be able to draw
from a wide variety of skill sets.
 4.
The ability to effectively communicate, collaborate, and adapt to situations
will be critical to ensuring competition in a global market.
 5.
The Arizona Common Core Standards ensure that all students, no matter where
they live, are prepared for success in postsecondary education and the workforce.

 Why the Need for the Arizona Common Core Standards? (cont.)
 6.
The use of common standards will help ensure that all students are consistently
receiving a high quality education, from school to school and state to state.
 7.
The use of educational standards help teachers ensure their students have the
necessary skills and knowledge to be successful by providing clearly defined
goals for student learning.
 8.
The standards won’t try to tell teachers how to teach!
 9.
Standards dictate the end product. Teachers determine how to get their students to
that destination point.
 10.
These standards define the knowledge and skills students should have within their
K-12 education careers in order to graduate high school able to succeed in
entry-level, credit-bearing academic college courses and in workforce training
programs.

 2.
The Common Core State Standards Initiative was coordinated by the National
Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers.
 3.
Governors and state superintendents of education from 48 states and the District
of Columbia committed to developing a common core of state standards in
English Language Arts and Mathematics for grades K-12.
 4.
The Common Core Standards were developed by standards experts and educators
and adopted by the State of Arizona in 2010.

“Common is good... One of the most powerful parts of
the Common Core Standards is that they are
"common." In our area and around our nation we have
many students who move multiple times during their
educational journey. With the overwhelming majority
of states participating in these same standards, there
will be less inconsistency, not only among different
states, but also between schools and classrooms within
those schools.
The Common Core Standards expect our teachers
and students to take on different roles in our
classrooms. Our teachers will become guides as our
students discover new concepts. Educators will
encourage higher level thinking and purposeful
conversations around these new concepts.”

generation of K–12 standards in order to help ensure that all students are college and
career ready in literacy no later than the end of high school. The Standards set
requirements not only for English Language Arts but also for literacy in history/social
studies, science, and technical subjects. Just as students must learn to read, write, speak,
listen, and use language effectively in a variety of content areas, so too must the
Standards specify the literacy skills and understandings required for college and career
readiness in multiple disciplines.

“As a tool for education, the Common Core
Standards help teachers strategically plan their
classroom lessons. For me, the mathematical
practices embedded in the math standards are of
the greatest importance! It aligns both procedural
and conceptual knowledge through reasoning.
I agree with National Council of Teachers of
Mathematics (NCTM) and the Leadership in
Mathematics Education who state all students
‘… need to believe that mathematics is sensible,
worthwhile, and doable!’ … “

“Public education is preparing for a large shift in teaching
practice and for student assessment practice. In 2014,
students will be assessed using the Partnership Assessment
Readiness of College and Career (PARCC). This assessment
is based upon the new Common Core Standards. These
standards are much more rigorous and require learning to be
done through combining separate subjects into an integrated
unit of study.
The PARCC assessment will require students to demonstrate
skills. Some of those skills are that students will be

informational texts, and write extended responses that

time for teachers to engage in shared planning time as they
create units of study aligned to the new CC standards. “

 Parents will have clear and timely information about the progress of their children;
 States will have valid results that are comparable across the member states, and;
Students will demonstrate knowledge of standards by completion of Extended Response

“As is true with most federal and state mandates, the move
toward Common Core Standards/PARCC Assessment
inspires both promise and trepidation. Common Core
Standards will undoubtedly level the educational playing
field among states, helping to ensure that all of the nation's
students are taught and assessed with a greater degree
of uniformity and consistency. The Common Core will also
help teachers across the country speak a common
educational language, rather than the current myriad of
"dialects" that exist from state to state, and even from
district to district or school to school.

 1.
Letter grades are to be used as just one measure of how well a school is
performing
 2.
All schools are equally evaluated both on how many students are passing AIMS
each year and how much students academically grow each year
 3.
Other factors such as dropout rate, graduation rate, and English Language Learner
reclassification rate are taken into consideration, when applicable
 4.
