OneGoal + KY Council on

Postsecondary Education Partnership

The Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education (CPE) and OneGoal are collaborating to offer a statewide solution for college and career success. CPE is providing funding to bring OneGoal’s strong, equity-focused, postsecondary planning expertise to districts and schools across the state at no cost to partners through for the next two school years.

What will this look like for schools and district leaders? You’ll take your postsecondary outcomes to the next level. Join a supportive community of experts and peers working to eliminate equity gaps. Assess your school or district’s postsecondary readiness. Define a path to high-impact improvements that’s tailored to your needs. And move forward with expert guidance—every step of the way.

What Our Districts Say

With OneGoal’s program, we can see our students’ progression after they leave high school. I love numbers and data, and we’re gathering information to help drive our instruction. The timing of this partnership is perfect, because the vision-setting work puts our district in a forward-thinking position as we head into the summer.”

FAQs

How does this fit into my district’s strategic plan?

-
+

We are not here to create new work for you. Rather, our team helps leaders organize, strengthen and create coherence across their existing postsecondary readiness work. Our coaching team of former school and district leaders has sat in your seat and know how to provide thought partnership and collaboration to help focus and elevate your work.

How long will KY CPE fund a partnership between OneGoal and my district?

-
+

This opportunity provides funding for districts to participate in OneGoal’s Postsecondary Leadership Network for the next two school years. From there, OneGoal will partner with you to help identify funding sources, including Title 1 and Title 2 budgets and local philanthropy.

Is my district obligated to pay any costs after the 2023-24 school year?

-
+

Absolutely not. Our Postsecondary Leadership Network is designed as a cumulative, three -year partnership. It provides deepened support year after year and offers additional opportunities, like the adoption of our Classroom-Based Model. However, there are no requirements past the 2023-24 school year and it is up to each district to choose how they would like to build the partnership.

What district and school level roles are typically a part of this work?

-
+

Typically, we work with principals, assistant principals, counselors and district level leaders such as Assistant Superintendents, Executive Directors/Directors of Secondary or Student Services.

What are the time commitments?

-
+

We generally ask teams for a commitment of approximately four hours per month to meet with our coaching team and another 2-3 hours every other month to participate in our cross-district communities of practice spaces. Zoom fatigue is real and so our team is committed to showing up in person to ~50% of touchpoints.
