“College Readiness for All” is an online toolbox designed to help educators and college outreach professionals increase overall college preparation and access for all students. Its features include strategies, tools, resources, and stories highlighting successful schools and programs, as well as information about how to strengthen various school outreach initiatives. Educational practitioners at every level–from the front office to the classroom–are encouraged to use the toolbox, which is anchored in a framework that aims to achieve higher expectations by promoting better social support for college, encouraging an increased level of academic rigor, using data to predict students’ best chances of success, and aligning curricula from grade to grade to ensure that students have the skills they need to achieve from one year to the next. The new toolbox offers separate paths for principals, counselors, and college outreach practitioners. Each section provides a user’s guide, presentations, checklists, inventories, and assessment tools to create awareness, assess the current situation, develop a plan for improvement, implement a plan, and evaluate success.
