The world of work and postsecondary learning for today’s students looks vastly different than for those who graduated just a generation ago. Postsecondary education is no longer defined, for many, as a linear path towards a bachelor’s degree; upon graduation from high school students today are presented with multiple pathways to a meaningful career that can include industry credentials, apprenticeships, and college certificates and degrees.

The State of Colorado, through actions such as enhanced graduation requirements, expanded concurrent enrollment opportunities, and financial incentives for schools to promote student connections to industry, has sought to enhance the alignment between secondary and postsecondary opportunities for students.  CSI schools have the opportunity to prepare students for Postsecondary and Workforce Readiness (PSWR) through statutory obligations and optional programs.
