• Welcome to the PUHSD Arizona College and Career Ready Standards (Common Core) Website

    The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.
    On October 8, 2013, Govenor Jan Brewer announced via Executive Order that Arizona Common Core Standards would be renamed and known as Arizona College and Career Ready Standards. 

    PUHSD Vision of Arizona College and Career Ready Standards

    To ensure college and career readiness, we strive to be a district of learners who act on the belief that development of robust and relevant literacy, numeracy and critical thinking skills are everyone’s responsibility.  As a community of learners we are committed to the implementation of Arizona College and Career Ready Standards and corresponding assessments, a comprehensive educator evaluation and focused professional development through aligned support.
