The California Department of Education has created standards for fifteen career pathways. For each pathway, ten distinct areas are identified, such as Foundation Standards, Career Planning and Management, and Technical Knowledge and Skills.

National Governors Association

American Diploma Project Network

To make college and career readiness a priority in the states, Achieve launched the American Diploma Project (ADP) Network in 2005. Starting with only a handful of states, the Network has now grown to include 35 states educating 85 percent of all U.S. public school students. Through the ADP Network, governors, state education officials, postsecondary leaders and business executives work together to improve postsecondary preparation by aligning high school standards, graduation requirements, and assessment and accountability systems with the demands of college and careers.
