Expanding Postsecondary Readiness Opportunities for All High School Students in New York City

Date Added: 

April 26, 2019
DRAFT ES-Postsecondary-report

In this policy brief ExpandED Schools, alongside a coalition of career readiness stakeholders, presents policy options for expanding postsecondary readiness in New York City high schools. This brief takes a practical, bottom-up approach, recommending changes needed to create an improved career readiness infrastructure. We recommend an office within NYC Department of Education to support all schools to offer career readiness; increased flexibility to enable schools to fund these activities; and supporting a wider range of postsecondary options through high school Offices for Postsecondary Planning. In addition, we consider how to expand student access to the Career Development and Occupational Studies credential (CDOS), to improve access to high quality work-based learning opportunities. We recommend an expansion of credit bearing, CDOS-aligned work-based learning opportunities; the certification of more CTE teachers and Work-Based Learning Coordinators; and incorporation of CDOS into accountability and planning tools.
