Competency-Based Education as a Strategy for College and Career Readiness for All
Within K-12 education, competency-based education is gaining momentum as a promising strategy to prepare all students for success in college and careers. Although states are at various stages of implementing competency-based education, there are a number of issues to consider at the intersection of policy and practice. This webinar will share recent CCRS Center products and tools around competency-based education including State Approaches to Competency-Based Education to Support College and Career Readiness for All Students, State Policies to Support Competency-Based Education for Overage, Under-Credited Students, and a forthcoming Facilitator’s Guide on Designing Competency-Based Articulation Agreements. To complement the discussion of the resources, participants will hear from an innovative partnership at a competency-based high school serving overage, undercredited student where they can earn competency-based dually enrollment credit with a postsecondary partner.
Our presenters include:
