The Education Lab Blog, a “yearlong project to spark meaningful conversation about education solutions in the Pacific Northwest,” just published an article about an exciting project we are working on here at SBCTC.

Read “New Course Can Help Vault Students into College-Level Math” to find out more about the college readiness math course we are creating to help foster meaningful alignment between high school and community college curriculum.

The goals of developing and making this “Year 12” course available statewide are to

  • Provide more high school students with a clear opportunity to avoid remediation and placement testing when they enter college
  • Improve curricular alignment between K-12 and entry-level college courses
  • Increase the understanding of key elements of Common Core State Standards for high school teachers and college faculty
  • Develop and/or sustain local college/school district partnerships with a particular emphasis on faculty/teacher collaboration

We are also working on a senior year college readiness English course.
