California School Dashboard - Understanding Your School's Score

California School Dashboard Logo
The College/Career Indicator (CCI) is a part of a school’s California School Dashboard. The CCI shows how well local educational agencies (LEA’s) or CUSD along with each school are preparing high school students for success after graduation, whether in postsecondary education or in a career. For this reason, the CCI consists of both college-and career- readiness measures. The high school’s Counseling Center plays an important role in College and Career Readiness.
