College and Career Readiness
The Office of College and Career Readiness is responsible for standards, curriculum, and instruction for all subject areas, PK-12. Information is organized under two areas: Core Academic Subjects (including Early Childhood Education) and Career and Technical Subjects.
School-Level College and Career Readiness Reports
College and Career Readiness (CCR) Reports have been designed to help inform instructional decisions at secondary schools. High Schools have the opportunity to enhance and refine classroom instruction and curriculum programming based on the school-level data shared in these annual reports. Schools are encouraged to evaluate these reports district-wide in order to determine the highest quality options for their college-going students.

The ACT assessments of interest were EXPLORE®, PLAN®, and ACT®. The College Board assessments of interest were ReadiStep™, PSAT®, and SAT®. The results of these studies can be found below.
