The Support for College- and Career-Readiness Standards (CCRS) are intended to help educators recognize what students are able to do in relation to the grade-level standards in order to help them move toward explicit success criteria.   This allows students to work toward grade-level and course content standards while working at individual ability levels. By identifying the prerequisite and enabling skills for each standard, teachers may plan instruction to address the achievement gap. These documents will be beneficial for teachers of general and special education.
