2 HSTW MMGW/TCTW Southern Regional Education Board One Signature Feature of Rigorous CT Pathway Programs of Study Assignments to CT Students Matter What are the elements of a good assignment? TCTW Forum 20132

3 HSTW MMGW/TCTW Southern Regional Education Board College- and Career-Readiness Goals Graduate 90 percent of students who enter grade nine, with 80 percent of entering ninth-graders graduating college- and career-ready and with 60 percent of entering ninth-graders eventually earning a state-approved industry certification; certificate from a community or technical college or degree from a two- or four-year college. TCTW Forum 20133

4 HSTW MMGW/TCTW Southern Regional Education Board What does SREB mean by college-ready? Being college-ready means a high school graduate has the reading, writing and math knowledge and skills needed to succeed in all credit-bearing, first- year course work in associates and bachelors degree programs in non- mathematics-based majors.

5 HSTW MMGW/TCTW Southern Regional Education Board What does SREB mean by career ready? Being career ready ready to enter and advance in a job or succeed in advanced training. At a minimum, it means that high school graduates: a) have the reading, writing and math skills to succeed in advanced training programs leading to a certificate, or b) have also acquired the additional technical and cognitive skills needed to pass a state- approved industry certification or licensure exam of sufficient depth and breadth that would add value to employers, the economy and long- term benefits for the individual.

6 HSTW MMGW/TCTW Southern Regional Education Board What does SREB mean by college- and career-ready? Being college- and career-ready means a high school graduate has met the reading, writing and math expectations set by the state to succeed in entry-level, credit-bearing courses leading to an associates or bachelors degree. Graduates have also met the states expectations regarding the reading, writing, math and technical skills to succeed in advanced training in a given career field leading to a certificate or advancement in the workplace, or has passed a state-approved industry certification exam of recognized value.
