About the Puget Sound Coalition for College and Career Readiness
Launched in 2010, the purpose of the Puget Sound Coalition for College and Career Readiness is to build a seamless transition from high school to college to career across the Puget Sound area. Our shared vision is to increase both the number and percentage of students that graduate from high school, enroll and persist in college and graduate from higher education able to secure a family wage job and/or career path. Our Measures of Progress include:
- Increase high school graduation rates
- Increase college going and persistence rates
- Decrease number of students having to take non-credit bearing college courses
- Increase college graduation and job placement rates with particular attention to family wage jobs.
