College and Career Readiness Summit
April 15, 2019 @ 7:30 am - 4:30 pm
Student success is at the forefront of priorities for South Texas College’s College and Career Readiness Summit. The summit will provide a forum for public and private schools, as well as higher education professionals to engage in a dialogue on closing the achievement gap in college readiness for high school graduates.
The theme for this year’s summit is “Bridging Student’s Success.”
The annual event will feature a day-long slate of both relevant and timely issues facing educators today. This includes equality for undocumented students and what learners need now for success in the future of work.
STC Dean for Dual Credit Programs and School District Partnerships Rebecca De Leon says the event also carries special significance.
“The summit provides the opportunity for key stakeholders from school districts, higher education, community leaders and regional workforce to engage in the importance of preparing students to be college and career ready,” said De Leon. “Stakeholders identify how to bridge student success to ensure that key issues are being addressed in order for students to be well prepared for their future.”
Keynote speaker Joel Vargas, vice president for JFF, will focus on what is essential for students to learn. He will also speak on what it means for shifting education to employment systems, as well as partnerships needed.
