Definitions for College and Career Readiness
Most Southern Regional Education Board states have one definition for college and career readiness while some states define college readiness and career readiness separately. As states continue to focus on postsecondary preparedness for their students, SREB encourages states to consider revisiting their definitions over time to ensure the definition, goals and policies are aligned and relevant.
