CCR Process (College Career Readiness)

Purpose:
American Leadership Academy believes that personal educational planning is essential to the academic and occupational success of every student. This planning should involve students, parents/guardians and educators. At the secondary level this planning will take place in the form of a College Career Readiness Plan (CCR). This planning will include reliable, useful, and timely data on student progress and goals which will facilitate student planning and the accepting of responsibility for his/her own success. Frequent assessment of student progress and goals is the key to the CCR process.
