Tackling Unfinished Learning
Alabama's high schools, community colleges use SREB's Readiness Courses to help students succeed
Districts and schools nationwide are investing some of their federal stimulus funds to help more students gain literacy and math skills and successfully transition from K-12 schools to postsecondary education and careers.
A growing number of Alabama high schools offer our Readiness courses to students who need additional support in literacy or math. Students who make a C or higher in the courses, usually as seniors, can skip remedial classes in the state’s community colleges. This approach is increasing students’ likelihood of staying in college and graduating. Learn more in this article.
For college students who need extra support, Alabama’s community colleges are also providing courses based in part on our Readiness courses, as described in this story from AL.com and The Alabama Education Lab featuring comments from SREB President Stephen Pruitt.
