For New Tech Network, college and career readiness means students are aware, eligible and prepared for the postsecondary option of their choosing. To make an informed decision about postsecondary plans, students must have an awareness of their options, as well as the costs and benefits of each option. In addition, students must be eligible for admission to the postsecondary option of their choosing. For all students, this means a high school diploma, completion of necessary coursework and proficient scores on admissions exams. Finally, students must be prepared for the demands of college, career and civic life. Preparedness includes not only academic content knowledge and problem-solving skills, but also the communication skills and personal agency skills to attain personal goals.
