Grace and Lisa are both high school students with their own needs and goals. Grace wants to be the first person in her family to go to college. Lisa already knows the type of career she wants. Both of them need access to data to navigate their unique journeys.
Individuals need information to answer questions about their postsecondary pathways. What programs meet my needs? Where can I meet my goals without unnecessary debt? Should I go to a four-year college or does an apprenticeship better fit my needs? What outcomes can I expect? Robust data systems must enable data access to help students seamlessly navigate transitions from high school into college and career pathways.
