College & career readiness

What is CCMR? 

College Career and Military Readiness (CCMR) is about preparing students for life after graduation. It is made up of curriculum, resources, programs and activities that help students have the tools they need to enter college or the workforce and begin a career. CCMR is integrated into the everyday culture of our district and is supported by state guidelines, partnerships with higher education organizations and businesses.

The state of Texas requires that students take college readiness assessments to determine if they are ready for college before they can take any college classes. There are three college assessments that can determine a student’s level of college readiness:

  • TSIA 2.0

  • SAT

  • ACT

Students who meet College Readiness standards established by the state of Texas can seamlessly transition to college without requiring remediation classes. Remediation classes cost students both time and money since they have to pay for courses that do not apply to a degree or certification before accessing the college-level classes they need to take.
