High School Matters and the National High School Center are winding down, but the College and Career Readiness and Success Center (CCRS Center) is gearing up! The CCRS Center’s mission is to better inform, align, and support efforts to ensure that all students are ready for success in college and careers. Housed at the American Institutes for Research, it will serve as a technical assistance hub for Regional Comprehensive Centers (RCCs), state education agencies, and other CCRS stakeholders. The CCRS Center will launch its website later this month and will feature research, tools and resources related to CCRS topics and initiatives.
While the National High School Center’s grant concludes at the end of March 2013, the CCRS Center will build off of the resources developed by the National High School Center and expand them to encompass the PK-20 continuum and beyond. In addition, the CCRS Center will host its own blog, Ready for Success, which will cover topics, events, and news stories focused on getting students ready for success in college and career.
