El Paso's College Readiness Initiative: Cooperation at Work
Stein, Kathy
NADE Digest, v4 n1 p1-10 Fall 2008
In El Paso, Texas, the public institutions of higher education have joined with area school districts to create the El Paso College Readiness Initiative. Through a great deal of coordination and cooperation among the participating institutions, high school faculty, students, and parents are introduced to the placement test used by the city's community college and university, students are tested, and interventions are provided to the students. The purpose of this initiative is to reinforce the idea of college attendance among high school juniors and seniors and to help them avoid developmental status when they do decide to matriculate.
