Over four years, in an equity-driven collaboration funded by the California Career Pathways Trust (CCPT) and facilitated by Career Ladders Project (CLP), the Santa Clarita Community College District (which comprises the two campuses of College of the Canyons (COC)) and the William S. Hart Union High School District (Hart district) deepened their partnership, strengthened their career pathways, and moved closer to offering seamless transitions for students entering college.

This report explores the results of the partnership: how it worked; its goals; what set it apart from others across California; what professional development the partners offered for faculty, staff, and counselors in both districts; and how this work produced change in the Santa Clarita Valley.
