Town Hall Recap: Raise the Bar
We hosted a town hall event called Raise the Bar: Policy Shaping Pathways. We were lucky to be joined by two policy gurus: Dr. Amy Loyd, Assistant Secretary at the Department of Education and Julie Lammers, Senior Vice President, Advocacy and Corporate Social Responsibility at American Student Assistance (ASA). Together, we discussed how recent policies will drive school change through intentionally building and designing pathways toward student success. One of these policies is Raise the Bar: Lead the World, a recent initiative from Secretary Cardona which will focus on:
- Creating Pathways for Global Engagements
- Ensure every student has a pathway to college and careers
- Provide every student a pathway to multilingualism
These guests shared the why and the how of the federal government’s support of pathways. They then went through a few of the six categories on PathwaysMatter.org, a site that covers the various state policies that impact and catalyze pathways. The six categories are:
- Learner Pathways
- Postsecondary acceleration & credential attainment
- Workforce readiness
- Employer engagement
- Data-driven decision
As always, our audience shared some incredible resources throughout the event. You can check out the links at the button below!
