College & Career Readiness Communications Campaign Committee
The College and Career Readiness Communications Campaign Committee has been given the charge to develop a communications campaign to make college and career readiness information accessible to Minnesota students, families, educators and communities across the state. The plan should ensure that the Minnesota P-20 Education Partnership’s broad definition of “Postsecondary and Workforce Readiness” is widely understood by the public. The plan should also ensure that students and their families, especially low-income and first-generation college students, understand:
- The academic and workplace skills, personal and social skills, and college and career knowledge that constitute “readiness”.
- The importance of completing rigorous courses in middle and high school.
- Options for getting a “jump start” on postsecondary study and workforce preparation (e.g., Postsecondary Enrollment Options, Tech Prep).
- How to develop a college and career attainment plan informed through assessments.
- How to access various pathways to college and careers including those outside of course taking.
- Information about the costs and affordability of college, especially how to access financial aid.
