Texas College and Career Readiness Standards

Section 28.008 of the Texas Education Code, entitled "Advancement of College Readiness in Curriculum," was created by the Third Special Called Session of the 79th Texas Legislature. This section requires that the Texas Education Agency (TEA) and Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) establish discipline-based faculty teams to develop College and Career Readiness Standards (CCRS) that address what students must know and be able to do to succeed in entry-level college courses offered at Texas public community/technical colleges and universities.

The law also requires that faculty teams periodically review the College and Career Readiness Standards and expectations, and recommend needed revisions.

Proposed Revisions - Open for Public Comments

The CCRS for English/Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics (Math) are being revised. The currently proposed changes to the standards may be seen here, upon publication in the March 16, 2018 issue of the Texas Register.

Comments will be received beginning March 16, 2018 until April 16, 2018 at cri@thecb.state.tx.us
