The project relies on a combination of student surveys and linked administrative records to provide feedback in order to improve policy and program alignment for Central Texas ISDs that prepare students for the demands of adulthood and for success in the workplace. The purpose is two-fold:
- To provide Central Texas school districts, postsecondary institutions, and employers with comprehensive, longitudinal research on what local high school students are doing after high school, and how a variety of educational, personal, and financial factors are related to their success in higher education and the workforce; and
- To foster best practices through workshops, seminars, and applied research, assisting the region’s ISDs, Education Service Center, and postsecondary institutions to increase the number of regional youth who obtain postsecondary education and workforce credentials.
