INSTITUTIONAL GRANTS FOR CONTINUATION AND IMPLEMENTATION OF COLLEGE READINESS INITIATIVES

    As part of Senate Bill 1 (2009) (SB1) implementation, the Council on Postsecondary Education (the Council) received a state appropriation to develop and implement activities to improve postsecondary readiness, placement, and student success at the P-12, adult education, and postsecondary levels. The goal is to continue the development and implementation of promising student success initiatives/interventions.

    Kentucky’s public universities, community colleges, and independent institutions received professional development funds to support the implementation of SB1 with university faculty and staff and funds to enhance assessment practices for college readiness and course placement. The Council seeks to incent Kentucky institutions of higher education to extend and enhance current SB1 initiatives or related new projects identified from those initiatives that address the implementation of SB1. The projects proposed should focus on a regional college readiness issue that bridges the student success gap between adult education, secondary and postsecondary arenas or provides support for student success. Proposals should address one (1) of the four (4) Unified Strategies identified in the College and Career Readiness Unified Strategic Plan. These strategies are:

    • Increase accelerated learning opportunities for all Kentucky Students;
    • Provide targeted interventions for all students who are not college and career ready;
    • Increase access to and quality of college and career readiness advising;
    • Increase the college completion rates of students entering with one or more developmental or supplemental course needs.
