Student-Teacher-Course Connection

Creating the link between teacher, course and student

Teacher and Student

Identifying the connection between the student, teacher and course is vital to student success and academic growth but is often the most difficult to clearly view and understand. The Student-Teacher-Course Connection creates visibility and transparency into the educational progress of students and the people who inspire them.

With the Student-Teacher-Course Connection, Administration can spot opportunities and proactively act on the relationship between student success, teachers and courses; Teachers can make key decisions that better affect their student’s academic success; and Students can learn and grow according to their ability and potential.

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.

The STC Minute

Look for the STC Minute twice a month where we’ll highlight updates, tips and tricks and other items sure to walk you through every phase of this important program.


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.
