The Early College and Career Credential (ECCC) Toolkit aims to provide every high school and every network the means to create a plan that ensures that every student has access to Early College and Career Credentials (Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, Dual Credit/Dual Enrollment, and Career and Technical Education Certifications).
The toolkit aims to achieve this by providing:
Numerous studies point to the link between Early College and Career Credentials and higher college enrollment rates, higher college persistence rates, and higher earnings potential. We aim for students to earn not only a high school diploma, but also a “second piece of paper”. We know that there is not a one-size-fits all approach and therefore we developed the toolkit to help schools navigate the portfolio of options.
With the Office of College and Career Success, the ECCC Toolkit was developed through close and ongoing collaboration between the Office of Early College and Career Education and the Office of Magnet, Gifted, and International Baccalaureate Programs. Over the course of 4 months, program coordinators met to develop the toolkit and refine the metrics used to populate the school-level Early College and Career Credential Scorecard.
The ECCC Toolkit is made up of three major components. First, the ECCC toolkit contains a broad overview of the toolkit and the various ECCC programs. Second, there is an ECCC school-level score card and several case studies of schools that are successfully integrating Early College and Career programs. Finally, the third component of the ECCC toolkit is a collection of detailed Early College and Career Education program descriptions.
Principals, assistant principals, curriculum coordinators, alongside College and Career Specialists and other network staff should use the ECCC Toolkit to identify gaps in program offerings for students and to take steps to address existing gaps.
High schools that use the ECCC toolkit will develop a vision for Early College and Career options as well as a path for how to realize that vision. We expect to see that schools that use the toolkit will begin to offer a more comprehensive array of course offerings that capitalize on student interest and ability as well as faculty composition. Students will thus have access to a wider array of options leading to increased levels of student participation in Early College and Career programs.
