College and Career Readiness (CCR)

College and Career Readiness (CCR) is a designation given to students in Mathematics and English based on several tests taking over their high school tenure.  Students only need to reach the desired score on one of the tests in each content and they are deemed CCR. Students do not need to be deemed CCR in order to graduate, but it is highly recommended.  If a student is not deemed CCR by the end of 11th grade, they will be required to take additional CCR courses for English and Math and test again in 12th grade.
