Virginia CCRS Curriculum Frameworks Website Launchpage hidden title

The Virginia Adult Learning Resource Center (VALRC) is very pleased to announce the launch of the Virginia College and Career Readiness Standards (CCRS) Curriculum Frameworks. Please explore this online platform to find resources aimed to help teachers:

  • better understand both the English language arts/literacy and Mathematicsopens in a new window CCRS standards,and
  • plan and deliver instruction that challenges adult learners across the skill spectrum to meet the high expectations of the CCRS, provides level-appropriate supports, and is relevant to adult learners’ lives and goals.

VALRC will offer professional development to support educators in navigating this frameworks site, using the frameworks in planning standards-aligned instruction, and adding to the frameworks’ collection of standards-aligned activities and resources. For news about upcoming online and on-site training opportunities, bookmark and check this page, or join the opens in a new window VAELN listserv.

The Virginia CCRS Curriculum Frameworks are the result of a multiyear effort by many Virginia adult educators and other stakeholders, from the initial suggestions and discussions of the Virginia CCRS Standards-in-Action pilot teams to the web design and development work of Slice Works. Most particularly, VALRC wishes to thank the Virginia CCRS Curriculum Framework Working Group, which planned and developed the frameworks’ structure, collected and reviewed resources, and wrote supporting materials and activities. Without this team’s work and dedication, these frameworks would not exist.
