Impact Brief: Rural Collaboration

Colorado Succeeds believes every student in Colorado should graduate from high school with a diploma, a postsecondary credential with market value, and a high-quality career-connected learning experience. Through policy and advocacy, we work to ensure all of Colorado’s students have access to a game-changing education.

To help answer this question, Colorado Succeeds developed a series of impact briefs analyzing many of the programs currently focused on postsecondary credit opportunities and career-connected learning in high school.

In recent years, rural districts across Colorado have been collaborating more than ever to bring innovative opportunities to their students, families, and communities. Collaborations through the Homegrown Talent Initiative and the Southwest Colorado Education Collaborative are bringing higher education, industry, and K-12 together in new and exciting ways.
