The research is clear – the 21st century workforce requires education beyond high school. When education stakeholders – including K-12 districts, higher education institutions, college access organizations and community groups – work together, they can accelerate postsecondary student success.

National Postsecondary Strategy Institute (NPSI) experts Dr. Joyce V. Brown, Greg Darnieder, and Kelly Sparks will share the impact that can happen when taking a district-wide approach that aligns higher education, school district and community partners using their model that emphasizes leadership, data strategy and school counselor engagement. Carol Lopez, supervisor of college and career readiness with Broward County Public Schools, will also share how their adoption of the NPSI model created greater alignment to better serve students.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • How districts can leverage and align partnerships with college access organizations and higher education institutions to increase postsecondary readiness outcomes
  • The NPSI model that emphasizes Leadership, Data Strategy and School Counselor Engagement
  • How Broward County – the 6th largest school district in the country – utilized the NPSI model to strengthen student postsecondary access and success
