PROGRESS & COMPLETION
Higher education and K-12 will work together to develop and implement
a strategy that seeks to identify students not on target to be collegeready by graduation and targets activities in the 11th and 12th grades to
reduce remediation demands in the transition from high school to
college.
Every Oklahoma institution will implement transformational models of
remedial placement and support through a statewide phased
implementation and refinement process.
Develop and implement a "Program Equivalent Project" that bridges
Career Tech credit hour completion to certificate and A.A.S. degree
completion in the community colleges.
Further expand and develop Reach Higher as a degree and certificate
completion effort that involves the entire system of postsecondary
education.
Reform Oklahoma’s successful Brain Gain Performance Funding Program
to provide metrics and accountability for measuring state and campus
progress toward completion goals.
