Texas College and Career Readiness School Models (CCRSM)

CCRSM Hero

Preparing Texas Students for a Successful Future

The Texas College and Career Readiness School Models (CCRSM) are open enrollment programs that blend high school and college coursework to help historically underserved and at-risk students develop technical skills, earn college credentials and degrees, and pursue in-demand career paths.

CCRSM Network

The statewide CCRSM network is comprised of 430 campuses implementing one or more of the following CCRSM programs: Early College High Schools (ECHS), Texas Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (T-STEM), and Pathways in Technology Early College High Schools (P-TECH).

For more information regarding the network, see recent CCRSM presentations from the 2019 Annual Leadership Summit.

 

P-TECH and T-STEM Blueprint Revision

Texas Education Agency (TEA) seeks stakeholders feedback to revise the current 2020 Pathways in Technology Early College High School (P-TECH) and Texas Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (T-STEM) Blueprints.

Background

CCRSM blueprints contain clearly defined design requirements and student outcomes goal to promote high quality implementation of the model. The expansion and evolution of CCRSM offers an opportunity to provide customized support to schools and districts to increase the college and career readiness of their students, create academic and career pathways for students, and spur cross-model learning throughout Texas. 

In the spring of 2021, TEA will launch a series of engagement opportunities for both the P-TECH Blueprint and the T-STEM Blueprint which will enable campus and district leaders implementing these programs to engage in a comprehensive revision process to improve the model design. New blueprints will be operationalized in 2022-2023. 

How to Provide Feedback

There will be three ways to provide feedback during the P-TECH and T-STEM Blueprint revision process. More information regarding the registration links, surveys, and public comment will be provided directly to program leaders closer to each date.

Survey: P-TECH and T-STEM Landscape Surveys will be available between February 1, 2021 and April 2, 2021 for interested stakeholders to provide feedback on design elements and the OBM.
