The profiles for each state were developed from a variety of sources, including publicly available information from the websites of state education agencies, the U.S. Department of Education, and private organizations. The profiles were also developed from work by the Regional Educational Laboratory (REL) Midwest on early warning systems and the Center for American Progress report “Making the Grade” on state accountability systems. These profiles are not intended to be a comprehensive view of all college and career readiness policies, programs, and initiatives within each state. Due to limitations of the search there may be information on state policies not included on the map. Links to additional information and resources for each state related to college and career readiness also are included.

The state map is updated on a regular basis to ensure state profiles reflect accurate, up-to-date information. For more information about our state map or guidance on how to use this resource, please contact us at
