College and Career Readiness
The Massachusetts College and Career Readiness Delivery Plan
The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (Department) recently prioritized a number of goals as critical efforts for the Department to undertake as part of Race to the Top (RTTT) and other state reform and strategy efforts. As a result, the Department created a new office - the Office of College and Career Readiness - and developed a strategy to increase College and Career Readiness among Massachusetts students. This strategy continues to promote the current high school graduation requirements (i.e., earning a Competency Determination and meeting local requirements), while providing additional opportunities for students to participate in: quality, upper level high school coursework; approaches to assist them with the completion of high school; and supports to assist with the transition to higher education and the workforce.
