AZ Academic Standards Unit

Arizona has defined what its children need to know and be able to do in ten content areas: mathematics, reading, writing, science, social studies, fine arts, comprehensive health, technology, foreign language, and workplace skills. The AZ Academic Standards Unit, in partnership with K-12 Literacy, provides leadership, support, and assistance to schools in implementing the Arizona Academic Standards in reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies. State-sponsored professional development for implementing these articulated content standards targets leadership teams from counties, districts, and/or schools.
