Established in 2013, the annual ACT College and Career Readiness Campaign celebrates achievement and creates awareness around the goal of college and career readiness for all. The Campaign recognizes exemplary college and career readiness efforts by employers, postsecondary institutions, high schools, and high school seniors in participating states. The California ACT Council, made up of California educators and leaders, will select its 2016-17 state exemplars this winter for spring recognition. The application is available online, and we will continue to accept applications through December 31, 2016. Please contact Mike DiNicola, ACT Southwest District Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
