Blueprint for College & Career Readiness

Year: 2015
Synopsis: By the year 2020, nearly 2/3 of all U.S. jobs will require a two- or four-year degree, yet Indiana currently ranks 40th of all states in higher education.  College cost and student debt have been highly publicized issues recently and the 2015 Capstone Team developed a blueprint for increasing college and career preparedness among elementary school aged students and their families in the Mill Creek Community School Corporation.  The College Go Week plan consists of a parent workshop facilitated by a representative from the Indiana College Choice Direct 529 Savings Plan, exhibitors from various local and state resources including College Choice Direct, North Salem State Bank, Hendricks College Network, and 21st Century Scholars, and an essay contest encouraging students to write a plan for their future career goals.  The blueprint could be expanded upon and used in other school districts in Hendricks County in the future.
