Collaborative Efforts to Improve Student Transitions. House Bill 3103 Progress Report
Washington Higher Education Coordinating Board
With passage of House Bill 3103 in 2004, the Legislature recognized the challenges facing students as they move from one educational sector to another. The omnibus legislation, which amended and clarified the mission of the Higher Education Coordinating Board (HECB) called on the board to work with the state board of education, the superintendent of public instruction, the state board for community and technical colleges, the work force training and education coordinating board, two- and four-year institutions of higher education, and school districts to improve coordination, articulation, and transitions among the state's systems of education. This first progress report, required by the 2004 law, documents the work that has been accomplished to date, and outlines planned efforts to improve student transition between educational sectors. It focuses on three specific areas: (1) Expanding dual credit programs, which allow students to earn college credit while they progress toward high school graduation; (2) Encouraging students through early outreach efforts to plan and prepare for postsecondary study; and (3) Improving curriculum and instruction in high school. The HECB will submit biennial updates of this report to the Legislature beginning in January 2007. This document includes two appendixes: (A) Data Tables; and (B) Reports. (Contains 5 tables.)
