College and Career Ready Student Planning Guide

Check out this best practice from Elgin, Illinois!

Pat Hayes, founder of Illinois NCRC Advocates, wanted to share the following comments and link: "In response to Kristin’s comments about best practices, let me tell you about one that was introduced last week, as a collaborative effort between Elgin, IL U-46 School District and Elgin Community College. Having over 2,250 certificates being awarded to graduating seniors, we held a celebratory reception with comments from our Supt. Of Schools, President of the College and Mayor. This is a big thing for our community and was enhanced by the introduction of a College and Career Ready Student Planning Guide. All courses offered at our College are now measured by WorkKeys Skills requirements. Further, the Median wage for these O*Net Jobs are listed for both the U S and Illinois, as are the projected outlook for jobs, upon completion of the course of study. I could see this as a neat tool for any college."
