NCCCS College and Career Readiness Adult Education Content Standards

The North Carolina Community College System College and Career Readiness Adult Education Standards were originally developed, refined, and field tested by adult educators from across the state during 2007 to 2010.  With the introduction of the College and Career Readiness Standards for Adult Education by the Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education (OCTAE) in April 2013, the NCCCS College and Career Readiness Adult Education Standards were aligned to reflect these new standards.

The standards cover content from grade level equivalents 0 to 12.9 including adult secondary standards (9 to 12.9) for language arts, math, science, and social studies based on the North Carolina Essential Standards.  Professional development on how to implement and use the standards is done across North Carolina each year.  These workshops are known as Applying Content Standards: GPS for Success.  More information about these workshops can be found here.
