What is the Student-Teacher-Course Connection Program?

This initiative addresses data system requirements from the America COMPETES Act, and must be fulfilled as a condition for funding received by our state and schools through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and Title XIV of the ARRA, known as the State Fiscal Stabilization Fund (SFSF). Designed to meet these requirements, the Student-Teacher-Course (STC) Connection links students and teachers to individual course sections. With this program, teachers will have richer data to better inform key instructional decisions that affect the academic success of their students, while administrators will have access to better information to enable them to more effectively support the relationship between individual student success, teachers and courses.

Student-Teacher-Course Connection enables schools to maintain current course names and local course codes but links those courses and codes to a common statewide course framework. Schools continue to enjoy the benefits of local control while Arizona has complete visibility across the Arizona education landscape.
