A Fast-Track Associate Degree

Mar 7, 2023

1:00pm – 2:00pm CT

Having a credential beyond high school gives students economic opportunity and economic mobility, breaking generational cycles of poverty. In this talk, states, districts and community partners will come together to discuss how they develop and scale cross-sector postsecondary paths – such as dual enrollment, early college high schools and work-based learning opportunities. Hear directly from panelists about their unique 13th year approaches that can be replicated in other communities.
