College and Career Ready Anchor Standards

What are the College and Career Ready Anchor Standards?

The College and Career Readiness Anchor Standards (CCR) define the destination where all CUSD students are expected to be by the end of high school. They describe fundamental proficiencies students must have when they enter college and the workforce. The CCRA touch upon critical thinking skills that are necessary for students to function in the 21st century. From the Introduction of the CCSS, the College and Career Readiness Anchor Standards are broad statements that "define general, cross-disciplinary literacy expectations that must be met for students to be prepared to enter college and workforce training programs ready to succeed. The K–12 grade-specific standards define end-of-year expectations and a cumulative progression designed to enable students to meet college and career readiness expectations no later than the end of high school. The CCR and high school (grades 9–12) standards work in tandem to define the college and career readiness line—the former providing broad standards, the latter providing additional specificity."
