SSSC 2023 Post-conference Workshop: Leveling the Playing Field: College Pathways Begin in the Ninth Grade

October 13, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

SSSC RegistrationDual enrollment is expanding in California and across the nation. The new multiyear CCC Roadmap between the Governor and the CCC system includes goals over the next five years to 1) close equity gaps in access to dual enrollment programs and 2) increase the percentage of TK-12 students graduating with 12 or more college units earned through dual enrollment by 15%. The state recently invested $700 million for high schools to expand equitable dual enrollment, and the new CCC Chancellor has indicated that this will be a high priority for the system for the immediate and foreseeable future.

How are colleges managing these new expectations? What can colleges that are leading the state share about how to accomplish this? How do we ensure that equity is at the center of expansion efforts, and how can we work together to change the generational trajectories of students from communities underserved by higher education in California? What would it look like if all ninth grade students had an introductory dual enrollment course and an education plan that included 12 or more units of college credit by the time they graduate?

Join us for this workshop that will explore concrete strategies to expand equitable dual enrollment, including creating a strategic action plan, focusing recruitment and outreach, identifying and removing implementation barriers, and making quick progress with colleges’ high school partners.

The presenters will also share tools and resources that can support attendees’ college and high school partners and discuss what else is needed to accelerate student progress and equity via dual enrollment. The session will be led by the Career Ladders Project and the CCCCO, and resource persons from several colleges will be on hand to support the workshop.

Presenters: TBA
