Title:Involving families in high school and college expectations
Short Description:Pprovides a synthesis of research on the college aspirations of many students and their parents, as well as the documented lack of information far too many families possess on the necessary steps to make the transition from high school to postsecondary.
Annotation:This brief provides a synthesis of research on the college aspirations of many students and their parents, as well as the documented lack of information far too many families possess on the necessary steps to make the transition from high school to postsecondary. The brief identifies current state policies that address each of the four steps necessary to negotiate the bridge from high school to college: (1) Students and their parents obtain information on colleges' entrance expectations -- minimum coursework requirements, GPA, etc. -- preferably as early as the middle grades if not earlier, but absolutely at the beginning of high school; (2) Students and their parents set goals related to students' post-schooling aspirations and annually choose high school courses to guarantee that college entrance expectations are achieved by end of grade 12; (3) Students and their parents receive annual updates on students' progress toward their high school graduation goals -- and information about remediation opportunities, if necessary; and (4) Students and parents receive information on making the transition from high school to college -- including applications for college admission and financial aid.
