States are implementing a variety of initiatives and policies to assess and support students’ college and career readiness. To help state leaders and policymakers identify trends and learn about innovative approaches to this work, the College and Career Readiness and Success (CCRS) Center has updated the CCRS Center interactive state map with new and streamlined content. The map provides an easy-to-navigate snapshot of state college and career readiness policies, metrics, and initiatives across all states.
This blog post is part of a series of posts that draw on technical assistance responses we have prepared for individual regional comprehensive centers and states to answer specific questions and address specific needs related to their CCRS work.
Achieve and the National Association of State Directors of Career Technical Education Consortium (NASDCTEc), with research support from the College and Career Readiness and Success Center, jointly released a report, “Making Career Readiness Count.”
