CCSS Systems Implementation Guide
Guiding Strategy 5
Collaborate with the postsecondary and business communities and additional stakeholders to ensure that all students are prepared for success in career and college.
Suggestions for Local Educational Agencies
- Ensure that career technical education (CTE) teachers are familiar with the newly revised, CCSS-aligned CTE Model Curriculum Standards and use them to promote inter-departmental collaboration in your high school community.
- Invite business leaders, chamber of commerce members, and individuals from postsecondary institutions to informational meetings regarding the CCSS with an emphasis on college and career readiness. A number of materials to support this work are available on the Higher Education and Community Partners tabs on the CDE CCSS Web page.
- Leverage existing partnerships established via California Partnership Academies to engage members of the local business and postsecondary communities in discussions regarding the CCSS.
- Attend local community meetings, and events sponsored by the local chamber, postsecondary institutions, or community-based organizations to talk informally about the CCSS.
