All students should graduate from high school ready for college, careers, and citizenship.
As states adopt and implement bold education reforms intended to dramatically increase a student’s likelihood of graduating from high school prepared for college and career, there is a strong sense among many states that reporting the right data to the right people at the right time, and reporting it well, is an essential path toward meeting their college and career readiness (CCR) goals. By setting their sights on improving CCR outcomes among high school graduates, states will promote greater opportunities for individuals as well as economic growth at all levels. Timely, accessible, contextual, and coordinated data reporting in alignment with these goals – and strategies for getting there – is a critical foundation for states’ CCR reform efforts. To go one step further, it can also serve as a strategic driver toward the goals.
