I have been in education for 38 years with 28 of those years for this wonderful district as a guidance counselor. My goal with this webpage is to provide as many resources for parents and students as possible in their search for post-secondary information be it college and/or career readiness.
 

College and Career Readiness

With the enactment of House Bill (HB 3), the legislature requires that End of Course Exam (EOC) assessments measure college and career readiness according to content standards jointly developed by the state’s K-12 education and higher education agencies.

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) have worked closely to develop a plan for the college and career readiness component of STARR EOC assessments.

College Readiness is the level of preparation a student needs in order to enroll and succeed, without remediation, in credit bearing general education post-secondary institutions.

Career Readiness is the level of preparation a student needs for entry into the skilled workforce; additionally, with the capability to adjust to the rapidly changing work environments. These skills include: Academic Skills (no remediation needed); Employment Skills (use of soft skills such as critical thinking and responsibility) and Technical Skills (job-related skills to a specific career Program of Study/credentialing possible).
