College and Career Readiness
Students starting out in college or a career need to be well prepared. The transition from high school or the workforce to college can be a challenge for some students, especially those who are not aware of the expectations and requirements for entering college level coursework. Once admitted to a college, students may take a college placement test to identify the appropriate courses for the individual’s skill level. The resources below provide information regarding college and career readiness in Florida.
Students are considered college and career ready when they have the knowledge, skills, and academic preparation
needed to enroll and succeed in introductory college credit-bearing courses within an associate or baccalaureate degree program without the need for remediation. These same attributes and levels of achievement are needed for entry into and success in postsecondary workforce education or directly into a job that offers gainful employment and career advancement.
Common Core Standards
Successful completion of the high school curriculum and mastery of Mathematics and Language Arts skills
