SB 1050: Implications and Opportunities for California Students’ College Readiness


California will increase the focus on college and career readiness at select high schools this fall. Beginning in October, the state’s Department of Education will release $200 million through its K–12 College Readiness Block Grant to prepare California disadvantaged high school students to meet  admission requirements for California public universities. Senate Bill 1050 aims to increase college attendance of underserved California high school students while providing administrators, counselors, and teachers with strategies for improving course completion rates, college readiness, and college-going rates.

High schools are eligible for this grant if they have at least 75 percent of students who are low-income or learning English as a second language. In our one-hour webinar on September 20, a panel of experts and educators will discuss grant details including:

  • College readiness indicators and how they will be measured

  • The formula for determining grant recipients

  • How SB 1050 will dovetail with current accountability plans

  • Ways schools and school districts can prepare for the grant application process

  • How college readiness fits into the current K-12 framework

  • Possible college readiness implications at the national level


Attend the webinar to learn how California high schools can receive college readiness funding from bill Senate Bill 1050. Reserve your spot today!
