Career & College Readiness: P-16 Initiatives
“P-16” describes an integrated system of education stretching from preschool (the “P”) through a four-year college degree (“grade 16”). It is designed to improve student achievement by getting children off to a good start, raising academic standards, conducting appropriate assessments, improving teacher quality and generally smoothing student transitions from one level of learning to the next. It also focuses on helping all children meet the proficiency levels needed to succeed at the next education level and in the workforce.
The P-16 philosophy supports students during their early education and K-12 public school experience and builds a bridge from high school completion to postsecondary success.
Membership includes local and regional K-12, higher education, and business and community leaders.
Regional P-16 Councils work to address the complex issues in their local education systems, while promoting a college-going culture and serving the important purpose of strengthening the state’s progress toward the goals of Closing the Gaps.
ESC Region 12 is a member of the Centroplex P-20 Council, Heart of Texas P-20 Council and Navarro College P-16 council
