College, Career, and Military Readiness

What is CCMR?

College Career and Military Readiness (CCMR) is about preparing students for life after graduation. It is made up of curriculum, resources, programs and activities that help students have the tools they need to enter college or the workforce and begin a career. CCMR is integrated into the everyday culture of our district and is supported by state guidelines, partnerships with higher education organizations and businesses.

How do we help students prepare?

CCMR is important from elementary to graduation. Our academics are structured around giving students a well-rounded educational foundation for specialized learning later in life. We also provide career and technical education for students to start their exploration early.

Helping students to discover and plan for their future is part of daily life across the district through our:

  • Challenging curriculum
  • Informative resources and tools
  • Supportive staff
  • Events and activities that jumpstart planning such as the Academic & CTE Showcase

CCMR Accountability

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) has defined a set of indicators that students can earn to be considered college, career or military ready.

Students who meet one of these CCMR indicators are considered "CCMR-met" and receive a CCMR medal for graduation. 

Readiness indicators are achieved by:

  • Meet criteria of 3 on AP examinations or 4 on IB examination
  • Meet TSI criteria via SAT, ACT, TSI-A, or College Prep Course in English and math
  • Complete a dual credit course (9 hours in any subject or 3 hours English/mathematics)
  • Earn an associate degree
  • Complete an OnRamps course 
  • Earn a Level I or Level II certificate
  • Earn an industry-based certification (IBC) 
  • Complete a program of study in CTE
  • Graduate with completed IEP and workforce readiness
  • Enlist in one of the armed forces
