West Virginia’s College- and Career-Readiness Standards have been developed with the goal of preparing students for a wide range of high-quality, post-secondary opportunities. Specifically, college-and career-readiness refers to the knowledge, skills, and dispositions needed to be successful in higher education and/or training that lead to gainful employment. The West Virginia College- and Career- Readiness Standards establish a set of knowledge and skills that all individuals need to transition into higher education or the workplace, as both realms share many expectations. All students throughout their educational experience should develop a full understanding of the career opportunities available, the education necessary to be successful in their chosen pathway, and a plan to attain their goals.
