February 8, 2016  The American Association of Community Colleges (AACC), the Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT) and Higher Ed for Higher Standards today released Seizing the Moment: Community Colleges Collaborating with K-12 to Improve Student Success. The full report calls for action in three areas:

  1. Precollege interventions to help students speed up and catch up;
  2. Streamlined postsecondary placement practices to smooth student transitions; and
  3. Redesigned freshman-year experiences to meet student needs.

See the press release and coverage from Politico,  Inside Higher Ed, and even a shout-out from Acting U.S. Secretary of Education, John King.
