Overcoming Barriers to College Success Through Actionable Data and Collaboration

Ken Sorey, Cal-PASS Plus Emily Lawrence, Cal-PASS Plus

The Problem
• Most Jobs Now Require a College Certificate or Degree.
• By 2025 Over A Million California Students Will Lack Degrees Needed to Fill Labor Market Demands. • Lack of Post-Secondary Education = Low Wage Jobs or Chronic Unemployment.

Finding Solutions: Using Actionable Data and Collaboration
• Creating a shared pathway to college and career readiness by connecting Pre-K through 12 to postsecondary education. • Increasing college completion by reducing the need for remedial coursework through the use of effective interventions and multiple measures of placement.

• Targeting and improving the transition from postsecondary education to the workforce.
