Ankeny's Definition of College & Career Readiness
Developed in spring 2015 in collaboration between ACSD College & Career Readiness Task Force and the Ankeny Economic Workforce Development Committee:
College and Career Readiness is the state of being fully prepared for a lifetime of personal success beyond high school, regardless of pathway after high school graduation. College and Career Ready students demonstrate critical thinking, complex communication, creativity, collaboration, flexibility and adaptability, and productivity and accountability, as defined by the Universal Constructs. Additionally, students are self-directed and demonstrate grit, the desire to persevere despite the obstacles that may stand in their way.
