Ready for College and Career

Because by 2020, three quarters of all jobs in Colorado will require some form of postsecondary education, the College and Career Readiness Action Team called for creating a stronger "culture of college" in our region's high schools to help students understand and chart postsecondary pathways that lead to economic independence. 

Strategies for strengthening this culture of college include increasing access to college and career advising services, exposing students to career options and giving them opportunities to investigate and explore.
