College and Career Ready

The College and Career Ready project will prepare ASD students for postsecondary education, training, and careers to help meet Alaska’s workforce needs. Through the use of assessments, curriculum, and professional guidance and planning, students and families will have extensive information on student interests, aptitudes, and needs related to education and career pathways.
