“Less than half of all high school students feel prepared to go to college or start a career after graduation,” Senator Singer (R-Monmouth, Ocean) said. “The High School to College Readiness Commission will give both parents and students the information they need to skyrocket to the top of every classroom and professional environment.”

S-2567 establishes the 18-member “High School to College Readiness Commission,” which will be charged with developing recommendations to enhance preparation for post-secondary education; and raise awareness among parents and students on admission requirements and other related issues.

The commission established by Singer’s S-2567 would include: two parents of public school students, the Education Commissioner, Secretary of Higher Education, representatives from various school board and education-related associations, including 11 appointed by the Governor; two members appointed by the Senate President, and two members appointed by the Assembly Speaker.

Members appointed to the commission would serve without compensation. Staff and support services would be provided by the NJ Department of Education (DOE.)

Under the law, the commission must issue a report of its findings and recommendations to the Governor and to the Legislature no later than one year following its organizational meeting.

“This commission will work to develop strategies to ensure high school students have the confidence, tools, and the knowledge to succeed once they enter the real world,” Senator Singer added. “I am glad to see the Governor support this worthy effort.”
