About CCMR Indicators

  • Readiness for the next step after high school - College, Career, or Military - is the culmination of a K-12 culture of high expectations, opportunities to engage in challenging coursework, and career exploration.

    The Texas Education Agency (TEA) has identified specific ways that a student can demonstrate readiness for college, career, and military experience beyond high school.  LISD strives for each graduate to meet at least one of the College, Career & Military Readiness (CCMR) indicators below through high school programming. 

    • Meet specific criteria on assessments of college readiness - SAT, ACT, or TSIA2
    • Earn credit for the Math/English College Prep courses offered to seniors on each high school campus
    • Earn 3 hours of Dual Credit in Math or English
    • Earn 9 hours of Dual Credit in any subject other than Math or English
    • Earn a 3 or higher on an Advanced Placement (AP) exam in any subject area in grades 9-12
    • Earn an Associate's Degree while in high school
    • Complete an aligned sequence of CTE coursework and earn the culminating Industry-Based Certification 
    • Enlist in the United States Armed Forces or National Guard after graduation

    LISD recognizes that these TEA indicators represent a narrow definition and measure of readiness.  We believe that students are much more than a test score.  The wealth of experiences provided in LISD prepares students to be collaborators, critical thinkers, and problem solvers ready to confidently take their next step after graduation.
