Support for Implementing Alabama’s College and Career Readiness Standards

The SECC will work with all Alabama to strengthen their plans for implementing the Alabama College and Career Standards by ensuring that they are

  1. identifying and providing to districts and schools high-quality resources that are supported by research-based and emerging promising practices,
  2. collecting feedback from districts, schools, and teachers to determine the quality, usefulness and relevance of the resources and supports they are providing, and
  3. adjusting and refining their implementation plans and resources to address identified needs or concerns.

This project is in the following state: Alabama.

This project relates to the following ED Priorities:

  • Increasing the capacity of states to implement their key initiatives statewide and support the school-level implementation of effective practices
  • Using data-based decision-making to improve instructional practices, policies, and student outcomes

SECC’s liaison for the Center on College and Career Readiness and Success (CCRSC) conferred with CCRSC staff about college and career readiness work in all SECC states, but placed emphasis on collaboration with Alabama through the state’s SECC liaison who requested the information for the state regarding CCR metrics used by other states. The CCRSC has provided some relative information for Alabama’s use.
