CCR Member Education Event Toolkit

Hosting your College & Career Readiness Member Education Event

This toolkit is designed to help child advocates learn the facts about college and career-readiness and speak up to ensure that every child’s potential becomes a reality! It contains everything you need to host a training in your school! Use this resource for your PTA meetings, trainings, and events to promote a higher understanding of the way high standards, quality assessments, ESSA and advocacy can make a difference for all children.After you’ve scheduled your training, invited attendees and promoted the training to your local parents, you’re ready for the big event! We also encourage you to invite your school’s principal or teacher to attend this event as they will have additional information to share and can help answer localized questions.
