Create a postsecondary-going culture. High school is no longer the finish line. We need more graduates pursing a college degrees or industry-recognized certificates credentials. Promoting the case for higher education and advanced training benefits social and economic vitality of individuals and our community.
Provide rigorous, real-world experiences for all students. Students need more than the basics of education. We need to ensure content is relevant to their future and they are being prepared for the diverse and rapidly changing workforce.
Offer individualized postsecondary planning and entry supports. Every student should be supported and prepared on their path to postsecondary education. First-generation students and their families in particular must have access to college knowledge and adequate support to pursue their postsecondary dreams.
Pursue funding to support our College and Career Readiness priorities. The Oceanside Promise fulfills a unique role in the Oceanside community by convening cross-sector partners to achieve data-informed, measurable impact. We will actively pursue funding for our capacity, our partners, and the emerging priorities within our College and Career Readiness Action Network.
