What is College and Career Readiness?
Duplin County Schools is striving to ensure that all students are college and career ready. What does college and career readiness mean? Undoubtedly, it is more than a high school diploma. In order to be "college ready", a high school graduate must have the knowledge and skills to qualify for and succeed in entry-level, credit-bearing coursework without remediation. Being "career ready" means being prepared for a career that offers the opportunity to advance and grow professionally. Walk with us as we take steps toward building college and career readiness for all Duplin County students!
