On October 26-28, 2011, the P-20 Council hosted three, regional, one-day workshops on college and career readiness. These workshops allowed participants to develop a shared understanding of college and career readiness and build relationships between secondary and postsecondary leaders in an effort to improve coordination and alignment to increase student success. The workshops were facilitated by the Educational Policy Improvement Center (EPIC) at Housatonic Community College, Naugatuck Valley Community College, Manchester Community College.

During the workshops, presenters provided an overview of the current state of college readiness, the prevailing disconnect between K-12 and postsecondary systems, the resulting impact on students, and the importance of ensuring that all students graduate high school prepared to enroll and succeed in credit-bearing college courses or career-ready with skills expected by employers. Participants learned about and were provided tools, techniques, and strategies to work locally to improve college readiness, leaving the workshop with an action plan to work with their communities.

Over 425 education leaders from around the state participated in the workshops - leaders from K-12 and postsecondary education, career and technical education, adult education, state agencies and associations, philanthropy, and more. Every public postsecondary institution and over fifty school districts attended representing close to 50% of the public high school graduates produced in the state last year.

Funding for the College and Career Readiness Workshops and related activities and materials is provided by the Nellie Mae Education Foundation and Connecticut's College Access Challenge Grant program.

Principles to Guide Connecticut and Our Educational Systems

On April 12, 2010, the P-20 Council formally endorsed the Principles to Guide Connecticut and Our Educational Systems at an event at the Legislative Office Building co-hosted by the General Assembly's Education Committee and Higher Education and Employment Training Committee. Dr. Cecilia Rouse, Member of the White House Economic Advisers, helped to drive the message that education is a key driver in the state's economic vitality and we are all in this together.

Economic Importance of Education Cradle to Career (pdf)

Briefing Document, April 28, 2009

This paper outlines the key educational challenges and opportunities facing Connecticut, and a framework to guide the P-20 Council's deliberations. It focuses on three goals that are critical to the Council's work in raising Connecticut's educational attainment level:

  • Assuring that students are prepared to succeed in postsecondary education.
  • Strengthening teacher preparation and professional development.
  • Improving data systems to better track student progress.
