      College and Career
      Readiness Initiative
             OBJECTIVE
   To improve the college and career
readiness rate of high school students and
reduce the percent needing postsecondary
    remediation in reading, writing and
      mathematics after graduation.
        How do we get there?
  American Diploma Project (ADP)
 An Achieve initiative created toensure that
  all students graduate from high school
  prepared to face the challenges of work
  and college.
 Network of 33 states
     80% of all public school students
     American Diploma Project
   Align high school standards and assessments with the
    knowledge and skills required for success after high school.

   Require all graduates to take rigorous courses - aligned to
    college- and career-ready standards - that prepare them for
    life after high school.

   Streamline the assessment system so that the tests students
    take in high school also can serve as placement tests for
    college and hiring for the workplace.

   Hold high schools accountable for graduating students who
    are ready for college or careers and hold postsecondary
    institutions accountable for students' success once enrolled.
   How did we get involved?

GOVERNOR'S PRESS OFFICE

TALLAHASSEE – Governor Charlie Crist today announced
  Florida’s participation in the American Diploma Project
  Network, a nationwide movement designed to improve
  preparation of high school students for the 21st century
  workforce. The Governor’s announcement came after
  discussing the benefits of participation with Minnesota
  Governor Tim Pawlenty.

  “Florida has a proven record of improving student
  performance across all grade levels,” Governor Crist
  said. “By working collaboratively with other states, we
  can maximize our efforts on behalf of our students.”
                 Why do we need to be
                      involved?
 55% of   all students entering Florida’s public
    postsecondary institutions require
    remediation in math, reading, and/or writing.
         94% of students requiring remediation were
          enrolled in community colleges.

 In 2005-06 the  total cost of postsecondary
    remediation was $129.8 million.
         The State paid $70 million, more than half of
          these costs.
Office of Program Policy Analysis and Government Accountability. Half of College Students Needing Remediation Drop Out;
Remediation Completers Do Almost as Well as Other Students, Report no. 07-31 (May 2007).
What does this look like in the
   community colleges?
   About 50% of FL high school graduates who go
    directly to a FL Community College are placed in
    developmental mathematics courses.

   About 41% of FL high school graduates who go
    directly to a FL Community College are placed in
    developmental reading courses.
