What is P-16 Education?
"P-16" describes an integrated system of education spanning preschool ("P") through a four-year college degree ("grade 16").
P-16 Initiatives are collaborative efforts designed to improve student achievement and encourage student success by smoothing transitions from one level of learning to the next.
