This Accelerating Opportunity tool is designed for use in developing and implementing integrated pathways. It uses a model integrated career pathway as the framework for examining the many components of a particular college’s pathways. This tool will help ensure a robust program that is designed around promoting student success.
State implementation teams can use this tool as a guide for ensuring that the pathways colleges design and implement reflect the initiative’s goals and advance its Theory of Change. JFF recommends that state and college implementation teams work through the tool together, using the results of those conversations to assess strengths and gaps both in the model itself and in how it is being implemented.
