posted Sep 26, 2015, 2:51 PM by Joyce Fan
Welcome back to a new school year! Across the country, the fall season is an exciting time for communities supporting students in college and career planning. There are a number of national and state efforts on expanding access to postsecondary education:

1. At the federal level, President Barack Obama has repeatedly affirmed throughout his presidency an ambitious goal of restoring the U.S. as the world’s leader in producing college graduates by 2020.

2. At the state level, the New York State Higher Education Services Corporation is sponsoring College Application Week, October 26-30, 2015, to support low-income, and first generation college-bound students to complete applications.

3. Here in New York City, you can look forward to DOE's participation in College Application Week as a citywide celebration of college-going cultures in our schools and an opportunity to bring extra supports into schools.
