Future Ready Summit: Helping Students Discover Successful Routes to College, Career & Opportunity

Every student deserves to find in high school a route that will lead to success in the future. The Future Ready Summit on October 18 in Nashville will explore how Tennessee can adopt innovative practices and use policy levers to prepare every student to make the most of postsecondary opportunities that lead to a successful future.

The 21st century workforce is rapidly changing, and Tennessee students will need to attain the certifications and degrees required for a high-quality job and economic prosperity. While Tennessee has seen some of the fastest growth in the nation in K-12 student achievement and has significantly increased the college-going rate, challenges remain in seamlessly linking K-12 education to postsecondary education and the workforce.

SCORE is convening Future Ready Summit: Helping Students Discover Successful Routes to College, Career & Opportunity following thoughtful collaboration by economic, K-12, and higher education leaders over the past six months.

The Future Ready Summit will bring in national and state experts to talk about approaches that will deliver the alignment needed to fully prepare all students for success after high school graduation. Breakout sessions at the summit will dig deeper into examples of progress in Tennessee and elsewhere, covering topics as diverse as community collaboration, apprenticeships, successful advising programs, and high school redesign efforts.

Registration is now open for this one-day summit. Seating is limited, so please reserve your space soon.

The State Collaborative on Reforming Education (SCORE) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to the goal that every student in Tennessee graduates from high school prepared for postsecondary education and the work force. SCORE was founded by former U.S. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, MD, and it drives collaboration across the state on policy and practice to ensure student success. We believe that we can achieve our goals for Tennessee’s students by empowering people to lead change on behalf of students, insisting on high expectations for what students can achieve, and fostering a culture of innovation.

The SCORE Sheet is the online conversation on public education reform in Tennessee and is hosted by SCORE. The blog mirrors SCORE’s collaborative nature and features contributors from Tennessee and across the country including students, parents, teachers, policymakers, community groups, and members of SCORE’s team. Regardless of perspective, contributors share a common goal: that every child graduates from high school prepared for college or the workforce.
