Registration for the Career and College Ready Nov. 14 Event

Career and College Ready Graduates (CCRG) Information Meetings Registration Open Now



The CCRG legislation requires high school juniors, who do not meet career and college ready benchmarks, to take CCRG courses in their senior year. These courses will allow students to enroll at the community college without the need for remediation. This legislation also requires that all high schools begin teaching these courses in the 2020-2021 academic year. With that deadline approaching, LEAs are invited to send a team to learn about CCRG implementation and courses. LEA teams should include up to six people including, but not limited to, CAOs, advising lead, high school principal or assistant principal, math lead or teacher, English lead or teacher. This is a “train the trainer” opportunity so plan for your team to serve as CCRG leaders in their respective areas of expertise.

Meetings will be held across the state.
