Students must be prepared for postsecondary education and careers beyond high school. Schools can implement strategies aimed at improving the rigor of classroom instruction as well as its relevance to students' lives. This will help ensure that students have the necessary skills to complete high school, succeed in college without remediation, and succeed in the workplace. Districts and schools may complement rigorous and relevant instruction with personalizing the learning environment.
Districts can design a portfolio of high schools to offer multiple pathways to graduation. In such a portfolio, all schools would offer college preparatory academic core classes and options for career development. A comprehensive portfolio of schools could also include recovery options for students who have dropped out or who need flexible approaches to credit recovery.
