College Readiness

The College Readiness Initiative addresses the need to increase the number of high school graduates who meet the Texas Success Initiative standards upon entry into college and who place into college level courses (avoiding the need for remediation). The catalyst for this effort is the El Paso Area College Readiness Consortium, which is comprised of El Paso Community College (EPCC), the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP), the Collaborative for Academic Excellence, the 12 area independent school districts, and the Texas Region XIX Education Service Center. Representatives from the Consortium meet to set into motion activities to achieve the stated goal of the Initiative.  The result of this collaboration has been that students are now provided the College Placement Test during their Junior year in High School.  If they do not place college-ready in any of the required areas (Reading, Writing, and Math), they are provided alternative interventions while in High School before they are allowed to retest.  This has greatly enhanced students’ college readiness when they finish high school.
