TVUSD Annual College and Career Kick-Off Day October 30, 2019

Joe Balleweg, Director of Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment and Carissa Teachout, Counselor on Special Assignment, presented information about TVUSD's annual college and career kick-off day activities. TVUSD's event is Wednesday, October 30th.

The focus on college and career readiness is connected to the Riverside County Office of Education Pledge—that all students in Riverside County will graduate from high school well prepared for college and the workforce. Additionally, the campaign is an outgrowth of the Riverside County Education Collaborative that was lauded in 2014 by President Barack Obama for increasing college-going rates in the Inland Empire. Below are TVUSD's current college and career preparedness rates from the California Dashboard.
