PACAC's Statewide College Access Network (PSCAN)

PSCAN was developed in the fall of 2019 through joint conversations between our association and several access and success programs across the Commonwealth, including the Pennsylvania Department of Education.  We discovered that we were having a lot of the same conversations, doing a lot of the same work, and researching the same information thus duplicating efforts.  We decided to join together for regular meetings and discussion. 

Our goal: to bring together access networks, research, and the conversations happening across Pennsylvania; to break down the silos that exist in our work to further meet the needs of high school students in the Commonwealth, especially in the area of advancing to postsecondary education. In each meeting, we share out various updates so that everyone can benefit from different events, opportunities, data and promote them to students and families.  We discuss access needs and issues along with resources we have found helpful or action items that need joint support.
