Principles of College Readiness

David Conley (2010) delineated seven principles of college readiness for schools. Develop a case study of your local school’s current college-readiness practices. Analyze the seven principles and whether they are practiced at the local school. Provide examples of the principles in practice. Based on your studies and independent research, recommend strategies for the school to implement the principles not yet in place or to strengthen the principles that could benefit from more attention.

Your case study should be 3-5 pages, not including the title page and references. Cite and reference your sources in APA style.
