Guided Pathways: Planning, Implementation, Evaluation

  • Planning: ESSENTIAL CONDITIONS, PREPARATION/AWARENESS, & SUSTAINABILITY
  • Implementation (Guided Pathways Pillars): CLARIFY THE PATHS, HELP STUDENTS GET ON A PATH, HELP STUDENTS STAY ON THEIR PATH & ENSURE STUDENTS ARE LEARNING
  • Evaluation: Revisit conditions, sustainability, and implementation. Continuously improve pathways by building on elements that work and adjusting or discarding elements that are not serving all students well.
