Career Ready Initiative: Preparing ALL Kids for Success

Commitment by

Council of Chief State School Officers

In 2015, the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) and its partners committed to launching an ambitious career readiness initiative to align K-12 career programming with the high-skill, high-demand needs of businesses and industries to better prepare students for postsecondary success. The partners will provide participating states with a comprehensive system of supports tailored to the level of commitment that each state makes. Through online resources, convenings, virtual community of practice, field learning experiences, site visits, and supported pilots, these efforts will enable 10 state teams to develop and implement career programming changes that will increase the number of students who graduate high school prepared for postsecondary education and training and roles in high-skill, high-demand fields.
