ABOUT OUR WORK
The Office of College, Career & Military Readiness (CCMR) empowers students to succeed through advising, rigorous learning environments, and life-changing experiences with colleges, industry partners, and the military. This office includes three departments located at Houston ISD's central office at Hattie Mae White, the East Field Office, the Barbara Jordan Career Center, and several high school campuses across the district.
College Readiness works closely with elementary, middle, and high school campuses to create and maintain a college-bound culture throughout the district, connecting students and parents with counselors, advisors, and every part of the college preparation and application process. Key initiatives include Launch College & Career Readiness Advisors, Project Explore (middle school and elementary school advising) and AVID, a college- readiness support program.
Career Readiness prepares students for the world of work, instilling in students a sense of who they are, with an alignment of purpose/passion that enables them to enter the workforce after high school. Key initiatives include Career Technical Education (CTE), the Barbara Jordan Career Center, and JROTC.
Postsecondary Programming is committed to providing the highest quality access and opportunity to all HISD students by increasing the number of students graduating college-ready and making all coursework options for earning college credit in high school more accessible. Key initiatives include Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) programming; dual credit, PTECH & UT Onramps; and EMERGE.
