In this resource library, we will be posting information about the College and Career Readiness Standards for Adult Education (CCRS), which is a central component of the content standards being implemented in Minnesota ABE.
The CCRS is one of three main documents that comprise these standards, each focusing on an essential area of knowledge and skills our adult students need for success in post-secondary education and technical training, workforce, citizenship and community integration.
