In addition to individual programs operated by each Partner organization, the members of the Future Ready Team have identified the following collaborative action strategies.

The term “Future Ready” best represents what Partners collectively believe is the team’s overarching goal: To prepare students, socially, emotionally and academically, for any bright future of their choosing while also ensuring that all postsecondary pathways are open to all students after graduation.


Over the years, partners have identified the importance of how social, emotional, and academic factors impact future outcomes for students. Partners have identified that while they share a common goal of postsecondary attainment for all students, they recognize that each student’s postsecondary pathway might look different as they follow their own dreams.

In order to continue the work started last year weaving together the work of the Plan, Enrollment, KEDO, and Completion teams, we’re bringing everyone together as a Future Ready dream team. Starting September 23, 2021, we will begin having partners from these teams meet as a single group to better integrate all of the strategies that are working toward educational equity in college and career readiness, enrollment, and completion (while still using small groups to move the action forward).

Increase and improve communication, awareness and understanding of future readiness requirements for students and families.
