comprehensive school counseling programs that

So…What about “Career and College
Readiness”?
8
What does Career and College Readiness
mean to YOU?
What is the Difference Between
Readiness and Eligibility?
9
15
Today’s high school diploma certifies college eligibility
via specified courses taken and grades received.
College eligibility is not the same as college readiness.
College and career readiness is more complex and
multi-dimensional than meeting eligibility standards.
-Educational Policy Improvement Center, David Conley
Implementing Career–and CollegeReady Standards in Washington State
19
Our Vision: Every student will have access to CCR standards
through high quality instruction aligned with the standards
every day; and every educator is prepared and supported to
implement the standards in their classrooms every day.
Our Purpose: To develop a statewide system with resources
that supports all school districts in their preparation of
educators and students.
Our State Learning Goals are the Foundation
(RCW28A.150.210, 1993+)
 Read with comprehension, write effectively, and communicate
successfully in a variety of ways and settings and with variety of
audiences;
 Know and apply the core concepts and principles of mathematics;
social, physical, and life sciences; civics and history, including
different cultures and participation in representative government;
geography; arts; and health and fitness;
 Think analytically, logically, and creatively, and to integrate
technology literacy and fluency as well as different experiences and
knowledge to form reasoned judgments and solve problems; and
 Understand the importance of work and finance and how
performance, effort, and decisions directly affect future career and
educational opportunities.

The “What”:
What are the Common Core State Standards?
13
Define knowledge and skills students should have in
the areas of English Language Arts and Mathematics
throughout their K-12 education careers so that they
will graduate high school able to succeed in careers
and college.
The English language arts and mathematics standards:
 Are robust and relevant to the real world
 Reflect the knowledge AND skills needed for success in college
and careers
 Are based on evidence
 Are honest about time
They do not:
 Dictate how teachers teach
 Dictate what instructional / curricular materials should be used

Guiding Beliefs and Approach toward
CCR Implementation in WA
15
20
2-Prongs
1. The What: Content Shifts (for students and
educators)
–
–
Belief that past standards implementation efforts have
provided a strong foundation on which to build for CCSS;
HOWEVER there are shifts that need to be attended to in
the content.
2. The How: System “Remodeling”
–
–
Belief that successful CCSS implementation will not take
place top down or bottom up – it must be “both, and…”
Comprehensive Professional Learning Systems are KEY
CCSS_Counselors_2.28.14
The “What”:
ELA and Math Content Shifts
16
 Shifts in ELA
1. Building knowledge through content-rich nonfiction and
informational texts in addition to literature
2. Reading and writing grounded in evidence from the text
3. Regular practice with complex text and its academic
vocabulary
These apply to content area (social studies, science, and
technical subject) teachers as well as to English teachers.
 Shifts in Mathematics
1. Focus: 2-3 topics focused on deeply in each grade
2. Coherence: Concepts logically connected from one grade to
the next and linked to other major topics within the grade
3. Rigor: Fluency with arithmetic, application of knowledge to
real world situations, and deep understanding of
mathematical concepts

 Our change to Common Core is at the heart of
assessment changes
 NCLB/ESEA requires states to assess state standards
for Accountability

We’ve changed standards so we need to change assessments
What we change to is our choice
 Smarter Balanced is where we are headed

 Graduation requirements are a state’s choice

1. Preparing your students for a

2. Supporting teachers with a suite of
resources
3. Connecting learning to life after high
school

1.
Build faculty ownership and understanding of the
CCSS as meaningful and useful college-readiness
standards
2.
Promote local use of CCSS and Smarter Balanced
assessment in ways that improve high school to
college transition for students
3.
Develop overall higher education agreement for use
of CCSS and Smarter Balanced assessment
WA Core to College web site
Deeper Value of Core to College Work
33
40
Making Alignment Meaningful by:
 Developing common understanding of
academic “rigor” and grades, not just course
titles, topics
 Creating opportunities for shared inquiry about
discipline and teaching/learning
 Building relational trust between college
faculty and high school teachers

Level 4
• Content-Ready/Exempt from Developmental
• K-12 and higher education may jointly set Grade 12
requirements to retain exemption (optional for states)
Level 3
• Conditionally Content-Ready/Exempt from
Developmental
• In each state, K-12 and higher ed must jointly develop
Grade 12 requirements for students to earn exemption
Level 2
• Not Yet Content-Ready – Support Needed
• Transition courses or other supports for Grade 12,
retesting option for states
Level 1
• Not Yet Content-Ready - Substantial Support Needed
• K-12 & higher education may offer interventions
Note: Applies only to students who matriculate directly from high school to college.

implementation team


Take stock of current instructional practices, strengths, and challenges

Plans



In relation to your district’s overall vision and transition plan
Access Achieve and Learning Forward materials to inform professional
