All students should graduate from high school ready for college, careers, and citizenship.
This ADP Network webinar slide deck highlights states’ actions to lift academic achievement, educational attainment and career success through innovative public reporting from early childhood through postsecondary education and workforce outcomes as well as key points from a recent Achieve policy brief, Creating a P-20 Continuum of Actionable Academic Indicators of Student Readiness. Cory Curl, Senior Fellow for Assessment and Accountability, shared key highlights from the brief, which makes the case for the importance of states defining, calculating, and using a continuum of actionable indicators to propel and keep students on the path toward and beyond college and career readiness, and identifies a number of high-impact indicators for states to consider in building or refining such a continuum. We were joined on the webinar by Peter Godard and Brandon Williams from the Illinois State Board of Education, who shared insights from their efforts to revise the state’s report card. We were also joined by Charles McGrew and Kate Akers from the Kentucky Center for Education and Workforce Statistics, who shared insights from their current and anticipated efforts to update the state’s P-20 reports.
