Nearly 40 percent of today’s students are not graduating ready for college and career. Educators striving to better prepare students for life beyond their secondary education must grapple with the reality that the world of work is quickly redefining what it means to be college or career ready. Students need a broader set of skills and understanding to navigate fast-paced, complex, and diverse workplaces. While providing students with this real-world skill development, educators are also tasked with connecting state, industry, and national standards.
As daunting as it may seem, college and career readiness for all students does not need to be an insurmountable task.
Hear from Jerald Wilson of the Dallas Independent School District, who was able to make more learning happen for the district's diverse student populations—including those who were not clearly on the path to college or career. In this webinar, we will look at multiple pathways, including AP and CTE programs, that can help educators provide students with the knowledge and skills required for career readiness.
You will learn:
- Steps to take to increase the percentage of students reaching college and career readiness at your school.
- How to open multiple pathways for all students.
- Strategies for providing the foundational content students need so they can earn industry-recognized credentials.
