Postsecondary and Workforce Readiness

Ensuring students are prepared and have the in-demand skills to enter the workforce is an essential strategy to meeting economic and business needs in Colorado. At the secondary level, the goal is for all students to understand and articulate their individual skill set, how they relate to potential careers and jobs, and graduate with these in-demand skills from high school. Colorado industry representatives are clear that students who graduate from high school and seek to work in Colorado need in-demand skills that meet business, industry and higher education standards.  

Douglas County School District is committed to providing our students with authentic, project-based learning, allowing them to explore industries, and gain the real world knowledge and skills they will need to be successful. The Postsecondary Readiness Department assists and supports high schools to ensure that secondary students graduate high school ready for college or career. Through partnerships with higher education and the community college system, the Postsecondary Readiness Department works to strengthen, coordinate and align programs and policies to support students through to success in entering college or the workforce.
