College and Career Readiness (CCR)
In an increasingly complex and specialized global economy, education and training beyond high school are vital for success in the 21st century workplace. Without such education and training, high school graduates will see their options for the future narrow markedly as the number of quality jobs diminishes for those with only a high school diploma. Therefore, it is imperative for Humble ISD to build a comprehensive program to ensure college and career readiness (CCR) for all students, changing our focus of responsibility from PK-12 to PK-16. The purpose of this webpage is to serve as a resource and assist in the improvement of college and career readiness for all students.
