Moving Forward: Policies Supporting Transitions from High School to Postsecondary. Strengthening Student Transitions: An ECS Policy Analysis
Education Commission of the States
Recent high school graduates continue to make up a significant number of postsecondary enrollees, begetting a clear focus by education leaders and state policymakers on strategies that support successful student transitions from high school to college. Of the nation's 3.3 million expected high school graduates for the 2014-15 academic year, a full 2.2 million are projected to enroll directly into postsecondary education. Ensuring that public policy supports successful transition for these students, while also creating pathways into postsecondary and workforce training programs for those students not currently enrolling directly out of high school, is a necessary focus for state policy leaders. As part of the Education Commission of the States' (ECS) continuing Blueprint for College Readiness initiative, this brief looks at state policies aimed at advancing transitions from K-12 to postsecondary education and includes state-specific examples of various policies.
