Arizona Aims Higher

Arizonans are joining together to Aim Higher for Arizona's students.

Arizona Aims Higher

Arizona Aims Higher is a partnership between Expect More Arizona and the Arizona Public Engagement Task Force

Arizona Public Engagement Task Force

Established in 2012, the Arizona Public Engagement Task Force is a collaboration of more than 50 partner organizations statewide representing educators, nonprofits, policymakers, business and community leaders who are working together to build public support for ensuring college and career readiness for all Arizona students.

With only half of Arizona’s high school graduates eligible for admission into an Arizona public university and almost 60 percent of freshmen community college students re-taking high school level coursework, the Task Force partners are united in their belief that rigorous K-12 standards and a high-quality assessment are critical to student success, excellent schools and the strength of Arizona’s economy.

The Task Force partners are committed to supporting Arizona’s educators, students and families with the resources and support they need to transition to Arizona’s College and Career Ready Standards and the AzMERIT assessment.
