States Adopt CCR Standards, Varying Policies and Supports in Place

According to an Achieve report charting state progress on policies that support college and career readiness, all states have adopted college and career readiness (CCR) standards but few states have in place a full complement of policies and supports in four areas--standards, graduation requirements, assessments and accountability--to facilitate implementation.

Most states, as the publication explains, are providing guidance and materials on CCR standards for voluntary use, have developed a coordinated agency-wide support plan for CCR standards and facilitate statewide professional learning communities. However, very few states require districts and schools to use materials aligned to the standards, provide certified lists of approved materials or have audited their current training.

In addition, 19 states and DC have adopted college and career readiness graduation requirements, while seven more states offer an optional college- and career-ready course of study and 37 states allow students to use competency-based methods to earn a diploma. The report recommends flexibility in determining mathematics that meet CCR graduation requirements, including CTE courses that include rigorous and identifiable math.
