The College Readiness Indicator System initiative has developed a menu of signals and supports of students’ academic progress, tenacity, and college knowledge at the student, school, and district levels.
In San Jose, the principals of an elementary, middle, and high school in the same feeder cluster share data and align their indicators and supports to create K–12 college readiness pipeline.
At-risk, academically struggling students – especially young minority males – have reached high levels of achievement in STEM fields through a program focused on trust, high expectations, and effective college and career counseling.
College readiness for all young people requires support from the district for all its schools to make sure their students are prepared academically and know what they need to do to enter, pay for, and succeed in college.
A “smart education system” connects a district, its partners, and an organized community to provide all its students with a comprehensive web of supports and opportunities, in and out of school, that will ensure college success.
“Municipal officials know that education is tied to quality of life and public safety; cities are better off when more people are well-educated.”
