To facilitate a more seamless transition from high school to postsecondary education, high schools and colleges need to build new relationships and examine educational programming on both sides of the critical juncture between the senior year in high school and the first year in college. This South Carolina College and Career Readiness Toolkit was designed to foster conversation among leaders from school districts and higher education about what it means to be college- and career-ready, and to help develop action plans for new and strengthened partnerships. This toolkit provides information, data, and strategies for educators and communities to help improve the college and career readiness of their students. Specifically, the toolkit is designed to (1) raise awareness about key issues influencing college and career readiness; (2) encourage data-driven decision making; (3) build partnerships among secondary, postsecondary, and workforce professionals; and (4) support successful, comprehensive action planning to make measurable improvements in students' college and career success. While the toolkit has some information specific to South Carolina, it can serve as a model for all states and districts wishing to implement a comprehensive college and career readiness action plan.
