Pathways to College Access and Success - This report contains case studies of programs in five states – California, Iowa, Minnesota, New York and Texas – aimed at transitioning high school students into and through college. Evaluating a variety of programs – including a middle college, an International Baccalaureate program, a tech-prep program and two dual-enrollment programs – the study considers the programs’ (1) student recruitment and selection processes, (2) curricula, (3) support services, and (4) data collection and use. Barriers to program implementation also are noted. The appendix offers more detailed profiles of each research site. Among the recommendations for policymakers and practitioners: encourage broad student access; build strong collaborative relationships; and work with researchers to gather outcomes data.
