The California College Guidance Initiative (CCGI) is a statewide collaborative effort to increase college preparation among 6th‐12th grade students and help smooth their transition to college.  The partners are California’s three systems of public higher education (University of California, California State University and California Community Colleges) and the Association of Independent California Colleges and Universities.  CCGI will create web-based college guidance tools, including a complimentary mobile app, (www.CaliforniaColleges.edu) for students and their parents that integrate verified student data.  It will facilitate utilization of these tools by K-12 school districts, higher education campuses and college access providers.  Four school districts in Southern California are piloting the project.  Over the next three years, CCGI will expand the pilot to a minimum of four additional Southern California school districts and work with up to ten California State University and community college campuses to beta test the electronic delivery of verified student transcripts.  The Foundation’s three-year grant will support two new regional manager positions for the expanded pilot.
