Regional Initiative to Build State Capacity Toward College and Career Readiness and Success: Making It Real

The MACC@WestEd is offering a program of regional technical assistance to SEA leaders in its 5 states designed to build each state’s capacity to more fully and effectively move towards College and Career Readiness and Success (CCRS). See the Regional Initiative Overview here.

On June 30th, MACC@WestEd held the first of a series of CCRS working group meetings. MACC@WestEd partnered with the College and Career Readiness and Success Center (CCRS Center) to facilitate a forum where state teams began to specify the expectations for what students should know and be able to do based on their state’s overall vision for CCRS. Future working group meetings will focus on measuring and strategies for achieving each state’s CCRS goals.
