The role of t he center for the future of arizona

The Role of the Center for the Future of Arizona

  • 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization founded in 2002.

  • Helping shape and define Arizona’s future through an action-oriented agenda with goal of improving the quality of life for all Arizonans.

  • Selected by the Arizona State Board of Education in September, 2010 to manage and oversee the Move On When Ready Initiative in our state.

  • Instrumental in working with the National Center on Education (NCEE) and the Economy to bring the board examination systems model to Arizona.


Move on when ready building a foundation for student success for all children

Move On When Ready: Building a Foundation for Student Success – For All Children

  • Clearly identify for students what we want them to know and provide a way for them to get there, with less worry about how long it takes.

  • Move away from a “one-size-fits-all” industrial-era system to one that is adaptive to individual student interests and needs.

  • Bring proven complete instructional systems aligned to national and internationally benchmarked standards to Arizona high schools, moving us towards outcomes-based learning and away from time-based learning.

  • Greatly increase the number of high school students who leave high school ready to do college-level work without remediation, opening up multiple pathways for students.


The arizona move on when ready model a few important points

The Arizona Move On When Ready Model: A Few Important Points

  • The Move On When Ready strategy and the related Grand Canyon High School Diploma provide rigor and college readiness for ALL learners – it is not an elite program.

  • The Grand Canyon High School Diploma is directly tied to a minimum level of college readiness and signals that students are READY to “move on” to different programs of study within and beyond the high school.

  • Students become “diploma eligible” – are NOT required to graduate early.

  • Voluntary program for interested schools. No present options open to students for high school study are closed by the passage of the Move On When Ready legislation.

  • Requires collaboration across the P-20 educational pipeline.


A commitment to all students the whole school move on when ready strategy

A Commitment to All Students: The Whole-School Move On When Ready Strategy

Bold commitment to ensure every student participates in a rigorous, curriculum-driven program of study guided by national and international college- and career-readiness standard.

In this model, every student is in a challenging performance-based curriculum designed to ensure they meet college‐ready requirements before they leave high school.

The Center for the Future of Arizona (CFA) is intentionally working with early adopter schools to develop a planning and implementation approach for the whole-school Move On When Ready strategy.

Ready Now Yuma – With support from Helios Education Foundation, CFA is working with Yuma Union High School District to develop and plan for a comprehensive, school-wide approach framed around the whole-school Move On When Ready model.
