A Toolkit to Kickstart Conversation About College- and Career-Readiness

States and districts across the country have adopted college- and career-ready standards. In doing so, policymakers have shown their commitment to prepare all of their students for success after high school, whether they choose to go to college, jumpstart their careers, or enlist in the military. But making college-career readiness a reality will ultimately depend on the understanding and support of the community.

The National School Boards Association and the National Association of Secondary School Principals have joined forces in creating a toolkit to help educators, parents and others concerned about education start a conversation about the importance college- and career-readiness standards for all students.
