April 12, 2016 —This blog post from Jobs for the Future Vice President Joel Vargas underscores the importance of partnerships of K-12 and higher education to create a “shared transition zone” of the 12th grade year, in order to help students move successfully from high school into college. In working together, these K-12 higher ed partnerships strives to both better prepare students for college, as well as support underprepared first-year students get up to speed and get out of developmental education. College-ready K-12 standards and assessments create a string foundation for successful alignment between high school and higher education.

College-ready standards and aligned assessments are the foundation of student success in the P-20 pipeline.
