What is the CCRS Organizer? The Organizer is a graphic that displays a consolidated overview of the many elements that impact a student’s ability to succeed in college and careers at both the institutional and individual levels. It is intended to be a comprehensive and visual representation of the complexities of college and career readiness and success.
How can stakeholders use it? The Organizer can be used to facilitate discussions and inform collaboration within and across various stakeholder communities and to contribute to strategic planning, conceptualization and decision making, as well as alignment of strategies and initiatives to ensure that all students achieve college and career readiness and success.
How was the Organizer developed? Originally created by the National High School Center, the revised Organizer incorporates feedback and insights provided by content-area experts representing diverse stakeholder communities, including workforce, early childhood education, career and technical education, community colleges, education nonprofits, and out-of-school time.

Disclaimer: The CCRS Organizer was orginally developed in 2014 and refers to lifelong learning skills. The CCRS Center has chosen to update this to Employability Skills in the Organizer Scorecard to better reflect the academic and non-academic skill sets needed for students to succeed in their post-secondary education and workforce choices.
