Knowledge, Skills, and Dispositions: The Innovation Lab Network State Framework for College, Career, and Citizenship Readiness, and Implications for State Policy
Council of Chief State School Officers
In 2011, member states of the Innovation Lab Network (ILN or Network), facilitated by the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), agreed to work together under the shared belief that their states face a great opportunity to transform their education systems to new designs that prepare all students for postsecondary learning, work, and citizenship. Gathering as a Network, these states aimed to define the challenge, establish shared objectives, and support one another in identifying, testing, and sharing replicable, cost effective models that will compel system-wide changes in lab states, in other states, and in federal policy. First among their objectives was to create a shared framework for understanding the definitional elements of "college, career, and citizenship readiness" (CCCR) that will serve as a compass for state-to-local actions. Stemming from the collective work of ILN states, this white paper communicates the shared framework and definitional elements of CCCR accepted by ILN chief state school officers in June 2012. Going forward, each ILN state has committed to adopting a definition of college and career readiness that is consistent with these elements, although precise language may be adapted; and to reorient its education system in pursuit of this goal. Appendix includes: "Underlying Assumptions."
