Linking Secondary and Postsecondary System: Lessons from Indiana

This report describes an AYPF-hosted field trip to Indianapolis, Indiana in order to showcase cross-system linkages aimed at increasing the number of students prepared for, attending, and succeeding in postsecondary education and the world of work. The report highlights Indiana's cross-system collaboration to align high school education with skills and knowledge needed at the postsecondary level and in the workplace; use of acceleration mechanisms and other academic strategies to bridge the educational systems; innovative approaches for teacher preparation and professional development; and the state's ongoing efforts to develop a data system linking K-12, higher education, and the labor market.
