This event will be held virtually over Zoom. Registration is required.

Session 1: College and Career Readiness Outlook for Youth

Our communities continue to invest in our schools and higher education with the hope that all youth will become college and career ready. This session offers a national snapshot of key state-level college and career readiness outcomes with respect to postsecondary engagement and completion rates. The session will also showcase strategies that states are striving to improve the future transition to employment outlook for today’s youth. These strategies include starting individualized career plans in middle school, expanding access to connected learning pathways, and implementing ecosystem collaboration efforts to coordinate PreK-12, higher education, and business and industry.
