Schools expand programs to increase postsecondary opportunities
from District Administration Magazine
Districts are cultivating college and career readiness programs by allocating more resources to guide students, by building new partnerships and by focusing efforts beyond high school. Tennessee recently expanded and rebranded its statewide career and college readiness initiative as Tennessee Pathways, which now focuses on K8 in addition to high school. Part of that effort includes districts and their industry and higher education partners raising awareness of employment paths, says Jerre Maynor, director of student readiness and pathways at the Tennessee Department of Education.
