Click Here to View Sample Pages

The time to start mapping the route to student success in college and career readiness is TODAY!

Multiple research studies show that the strongest predictors of postsecondary school attendance and completion, particularly for minority and low-income students, are:

    • Academic preparation
    • Social support
    • Access to information
    • Family engagement
    • Knowledge about postsecondary education options and financial aid

As family engagement is a critical component, schools must work together with families to ensure that students understand and take the steps necessary to reach their goals. The College & Career Readiness Resource Kit is designed to do just that for middle and high school students and the families and educators who guide them. 

How to Use This Kit

Using the ready-made presentation and reproducible handouts, you will empower families to:

  • Create an action plan for success that includes goals, expectations and a four-year plan of high school courses.
  • Identify the student's strengths, interests and education options.
  • Prepare for family/counselor/teacher/student conferences on college and career readiness and more.

Families will learn ways to build a support network, get ready for important testing, pay for postsecondary education, strengthen study habits and enable the student to take responsibility for learning. Making these preparations now will open the doors for future student success!
