What is Ramp-Up To Readiness?


DBHS be implementing a new college and career readiness program this year for students in grades 6-12. Ramp-Up to Readiness is a comprehensive, school-wide advisory program designed to provide students with the knowledge, habits, and skills necessary for success in college. Ramp-Up to Readiness meets the requirements of the state legislation for schools to prepare students for postsecondary education and employment.


The Ramp-Up to Readiness program defines college as any sort of postsecondary credential, certificate, or degree. This includes technical schools, community colleges, and 4-year colleges and universities. The goal of Ramp-Up is to help students reach their highest potential and succeed at the next level.


All students in grades 6-12 will meet in advisory groups every Wednesday for 30 minutes throughout the entire school year. Students will participate in activities that will help prepare them for college in 5 areas:
 Academic Readiness
 Admissions Readiness
 Career Readiness
 Financial Readiness
 Personal and Social Readiness


You can learn more about Ramp-Up at Open House on Tuesday, August 26th from 3:30-7:00. You will receive “A Parent’s Guide to College and Career Readiness”, which is a guide that provides more details on the Ramp-Up to Readiness program.
