PHOENIX — On (Dec. 26), Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction Diane Douglas supported the State Board of Education’s decision to replace the Common Core Standards by formally adopting the second draft of the 2016 Arizona English Language Arts and Mathematics Standards.

“These new standards represent the final step in the repeal and replacement of Common Core in Arizona, and they reflect the thoughts and recommendations of thousands of Arizona citizens,” Douglas said. “I would like to thank everyone involved in this important work for their contributions, from the more than 200 teachers who donated thousands of hours in working groups to the parents whose input helped shape these documents. I would also like to thank my amazing K-12 standards team here at the department for making this process possible.”
