This inaugural report aims to inform local education improvement efforts by following a cohort of more than 2,000 high school graduates on their three-year journey through seven community and technical colleges in the Road Map Project region.

Among students who graduated from a Road Map Project region high school in 2011 and enrolled in college, 51 percent did so at a local community and technical college. Because so many of our college students attend local institutions, the Road Map Project community has a tremendous opportunity to support their degree or credential attainment.

The report looks at certain criteria indicating student success and shows low rates of credential completion, especially among students of color and students who are part-time enrollees.

The report uses new criteria for student success in our CTCs and reveals low rates of credential completion, especially among students of color and students who are part-time enrollees. The report spotlights district and college efforts and current initiatives. Analysis work in 2017 examines impact of high school coursetaking on these later outcomes. Annual updates to this report will contribute to the continuous cycle of inquiry and improvement that is happening in programs all over our region.
