How to boost post-high school success
New Jersey's Marlboro Township Public Schools takes four steps to help its K-8 students become college and career ready before they ever leave for high school, including having students take assessments four to five times a year to make sure they’re meeting state college and career readiness standards, eSchool News reports.Students are also introduced to professionals in the working world at an early age through remote video chats, giving them an opportunity to ask questions of the speakers for more immediate information.Soft skill development is also encouraged, as well as providing time for students to work on projects of their own choosing every week.Those in charge of a school or district's curriculum don’t have to reinvent the wheel or strain budgets to make sure students have relevant college and career ready skills before they leave school.
