All students should graduate from high school ready for college, careers, and citizenship.
Achieve and NASDCTEc Webinar: Making Career Readiness Count Achieve and the National Association of State Directors of Career and Technical Education (NASDCTEc) hosted a webinar on May 27, 2014 open to state leaders and partners in all 50 states to provide guidance to states interested in building more indicators of career preparation into their accountability and public reporting systems and to preview a new joint publication, "Making Career Readiness Count." In addition to sharing a view of how states are currently approaching this challenge, presenters discussed what state policy leaders need to consider as they look to reform their reporting and accountability systems to ensure that the “career” in college- and career-ready accountability and public reporting is a powerful lever to focus priorities, drive progress, and ultimately see more students – and their communities – succeed. State leaders from Missouri and Virginia also shared the range of career-focused indicators used within their accountability and public reporting systems.
