Part 1 of a Series

Brief 1: An Introduction

Client: Core to College Network

In this brief we outline what alignment between K-12 and higher education means and how to achieve it in practice. We go into detail on why alignment is important and what the key elements of alignment are. We then offer practical advice for how to get started and create an alignment agenda based on our experience in the field.

This is the first in a series of six briefs on K-12 and higher education alignment titled K-12/Higher Education Alignment: An Action Agenda for Increasing Student Success. The series is based on our experience as the national director for the Core to College project and the experience of the State Higher Education Executive Officers (SHEEO) with the College and Career Readiness Partnership. Each brief describes a different alignment challenge, practical advice for action, important resources and state examples.
