    Director of College and Career Readiness


    Our Mission

    The College and Career Readiness department is committed to empowering all students through enhanced acceleration opportunities which include advanced studies, improved digital literacy, and career and technical education that articulate to post-secondary education and the workplace.


    Students are considered college and career ready when they have the knowledge, skills, and academic preparation needed to enroll and succeed in introductory college credit-bearing courses within an associate or baccalaureate degree program without the need for remediation. These same attributes and levels of achievement are needed for entry into and success in postsecondary workforce education or directly into a job that offers gainful employment and career advancement.
