Postsecondary Success

Most new jobs in the future will be “middle skill” jobs — those requiring a diploma, but less than a four-year degree. 

Much like a high school diploma, postsecondary success opens the door to a wide variety of opportunities. However, it is important to keep in mind that not every student will require a four-year degree. Some students may opt to attend a two-year or technical college or join the military — all of which play a critical role in preparing students for the workforce.

In order to meet the workforce needs in Kansas, the state will need more students completing a credential.
