Increasing Postsecondary Participation and Success

Access: Cost Containment and Improved Financial Assistance

  • Positively influence student price responses by intentionally limiting tuition increases to 5% for low & middle income students
  • And, dramatically increasing need-based financial aid and general fund support
  • 2008 ballot initiative for need-based financial assistance (60% of revenues from proposed severance tax modification)

Information: College and Career Planning

  • Move more students’ attitudes to intentional behaviors by way of the Colorado Counselor Corps, a program that will place more than 70 new “college coach” style counselors in schools.

Analysis: Improved Analytical Capacity

  • Improve ability to determine efficacy of state-level initiatives by developing a cross-departmental data sharing protocol

  • Preparation: Assumptions of the Colorado Achievement Plan for Kids (CAP4K):
  • K-12 and higher education systems respond differently to various incentives and sanctions. To ensure the achievement of statewide, multi-sector objectives, there must be better cross-system coherence and coordination.
  • Piecemeal policies will not address systemic problems, and that there are no simple solutions.
  • To create meaningful change, each part of the system has to be empowered, vested, and accountable.
  • Funding should follow form and performance (more for more).
  • The result must be relevant to students, rigorous enough to satisfy postsecondary/workforce expectations, and meaningful/interpretable across sectors.
  • Academic targets must be meaningful and tangible: Matriculation to college without remediation.
