Blueprint for College Readiness: A 50-State Policy Analysis

The Education Commission of the States launched the Blueprint for College Readiness initiative to provide guidance and support to the growing number of states working to improve student success and transition from high school into postsecondary.

Designed by state leaders for state leaders, the Blueprint features a menu of 10 critical policies promoting college readiness and success. The 50-state analysis explores the extent to which states are pursuing these policies.

The Blueprint is designed to serve as a framework to help K–12 and higher education leaders conceptualize the multitude of education reform efforts underway in their states. It’s based on the premise that K–12 and postsecondary collaboration is essential to building an aligned education pipeline and improving student outcomes.
