College and Career Readiness: Targeted Transitional Interventions

Any junior who does not meet CCR benchmarks on their ACT are required
to have transitional interventions in Mathematics, Reading and/or English
in their senior year to help reduce college remediation rates and increase
college readiness. In this session, the presenter will give audiences the
legislative overview and background for the transitional course
requirements and review the state-sponsored Reading and English curriculum
framework that is available to schools and districts at no cost. Participants
will have an opportunity to ask questions and to provide feedback on the
curriculum frameworks as time allows.
