The purpose of the current project was to prepare P-16 education professionals to assist students in meeting college and career readiness and skilled workforce expectations and standards. The project established a model for developing a strong professional base of teacher educators, with the goal of connecting content and application. The focus on developing and implementing College and Career Readiness Standards (CCR Standards)-based lessons, along with faculty and peer support provided to preservice teachers, provided a solid foundation for initial implementation of the CCR Standards and mentoring related to the CCR Standards. Results of the study indicate that students were confident in implementing the CCR Standards, however, lack of school district knowledge and support for the standards limited their implementation.
