Transitioning from Secondary to Postsecondary Education

Thursday, June 28, 2012
1:00 pm PST / 3:00 pm EST

This recorded webinar and materials are targeted toward school leaders, teachers from all content areas, guidance counselors and district curriculum and instruction leaders.

Building on prior webinars (i.e., early warning systems to identify students at-risk of dropping out, math and reading interventions, and building a college-going culture), the final topic in the series focuses on helping high school students transition to postsecondary education through evolving supports. 

Questions that will be explored include:

  • How can schools organize to support all students to transition to postsecondary education, including students who have struggled and fallen off-track to graduation? 
  • What role can postsecondary partners play in providing opportunities for students to “try out” college while in high school?
  • What steps can schools and their community and postsecondary partners take to ensure that students have a successful first year of college?

Participants walk away from this session being able to:

  • Understand the steps that schools can take to build smooth on-ramps to postsecondary education for all students
  • Consider opportunities for building a district-wide approach to postsecondary bridging to ensure college success for all
  • Reflect on the webinar seriesto identify next steps to align their systems: data, instruction, intervention, student retention
  • Identify resources for supporting students in post-secondary success
