Purpose: Currently states and districts are working to prepare students in their organizations to be college and career-ready. In doing this these organizations are defining what that means, finding the data necessary to track and report progress, and creating programs and resources to support students. It is the purpose of this working group to explore how the Forum can contribute to the discussion of what college and career ready is and provide best practice on how data might contribute to the efforts around college and career ready. This could include how to collect, store, report, and act on college and career ready data. This work will be focused on practical and actionable information and will be grounded in the need of the Forum members.
Current Tasks: The Working Group is exploring the development of a Forum resource.
