Tracking student success beyond graduation...

CACC is in the process of developing a plan to track the performance of students after they graduate from CACC to make sure that we are doing everything possible to prepare our students for kindergarten and beyond. Our plan is to track educational outcomes for up to four years after students leave CACC.
