Finding the best ways for students to learn and achieve success is of paramount importance to the state and the nation. More than ever before, college and career readiness is critical to the nation's economy, with college completion being an integral objective to achieving this goal. Illinois is committed to the Common Core State Standards, striving to better align Pre-K-12 curricula with higher education and the workforce. Further, President Obama's administration and numerous groups (e.g., Complete College America, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Lumina Foundation for Education) are raising college completion to a national priority. Illinois is stepping up, with state and local leaders improving programs and helping learners to succeed. Illinois' Programs of Study initiative is key to achieving this crucial goal. Uniquely important to integrating and aligning curriculum and instruction, Programs of Study help all students--from young people attending K-12 education to adults entering and reentering the educational system--to transition to college ready to learn and to complete college prepared for rewarding careers. This Compendium shows how secondary schools, community colleges, four-year colleges and universities, adult education providers, businesses and industries, and other organizations are collaborating to improve Programs of Study through a new initiative called Pathways to Results (PTR). Through the leadership of Partnerships for College and Career Success (PCCS) and other partner organizations, the PTR projects described in this document show how local teams are using an inquiry-based and equity-guided process to prepare diverse learners for learning and life.
