New England Reimagining College Access Collaborative-Technical Webinar #1: School Transcripts and Profiles
Great Schools Partnership, in collaboration with the Learning Policy Institute, is facilitating the New England Reimagining College Access Collaborative Community of Practice. This exciting regional initiative is designed to explore how the use of K-12 performance assessments can provide better information about students’ preparedness for higher education. Through this initiative, we seek to engage with professionals from college admissions and secondary schools across New England who are interested in employing strategies to attract, select, and support a more diverse student body.
One of the insights that has emerged in our initial work in the New England Reimagining College Access Collaborative is the importance of a descriptive school profile to effectively explain the work of the school and the capacities of each student. In this 1-hour webinar, we will examine examples of high school transcripts and school profiles that provide information about students’ transferable skills and deeper learning. Panelists from a variety of colleges and universities across New England will discuss the details of transcripts and school profiles that provide them with the most accurate picture of a student. Participants will leave with specific resources and guidance on ways to use the school profile to effectively represent students’ experiences.
