The College and Career Readiness Bureau (CCRB) of the New Mexico Public Education Department (PED) is dedicated to providing the students of our state with an educational foundation that takes them from primary school through secondary and postsecondary studies encouraging exploration and achievement in academic, career and technical education. Integration of academic foundations and work ready skills prepares our students for the rigorous demands of college and career. It is the educational development of our students upon which the economic development of New Mexico continues to depend.
The CCRB provides leadership for the state’s college and career readiness system. The CCRB administers the following programs:
