What are Faculty Collaboratives?
The College & Career Readiness Initiative (CCRI) Faculty Collaborative Program is a P-16 initiative that seeks to engage faculty members from Texas Institutions of Higher Education associated with the delivery of educator preparation programs.
What are College & Career Readiness Standards (CCRS)?
In an effort to address declining college success, the 79th Legislature passed House Bill 1, which included the "Advancement of College Readiness in Curriculum." As a result, the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB), established vertical teams composed of post-secondary and secondary faculty to establish subject-specific standards. In January of 2008, the College and Career Readiness Standards were adopted by THECB.
