New! – What does College and Career mean for Students Final 8-21-13 – Transitioning to a New Alternate Assessment-for schools – National Center and State Collaborative (NCSC) Summary 2013 **Important note** IEPs, Alternate Academic Standards, and Arizona Common Core Standards (ACCS): 2013-2014 is a transitional year for assessment. To be eligible for the alternate assessment, students must continue to have goals and objectives aligned to our alternate standards. However, as a state we have already fully transitioned to the implementation of the Arizona Common Core Standards (ACCS), and teachers are utilizing them for instruction and IEP development. Incorporation of both into IEPs is necessary and can be accomplished by integrating alternate academic standards along with those from ACCS. Teachers can reference the NCSC instructional resources for assistance in taking the next steps in accessing the Arizona Common Core Standards (ACCS).We will continue to use Arizona Alternate Academic Standards for Science until further notice.
