  9. Bridges to Opportunity • CCCS proposes that the state embrace a new initiative: the Bridges to Opportunity through Career Pathways initiative. • The renewal of education as a public good is intrinsic in the initiative. • Partnership among providers of education from pre-school to graduate school (P-20) as well as partnership between education, workforce councils and business and industry is a key factor for success. • Finally, the strategic deployment of the state’s resources on this initiative is critical.

  10. Colorado State Plan Eight Strategies: ► Implementing CTE plans of study. ► Strengthening accountability for results. ► Moving to a project-based focus for local planning and implementation. ► Assessing career and technical skills. ► Integrating academic and CTE skills & knowledge. ► Expanding Colorado’s corps of effective CTE teachers. ► Ensuring access and success for Special Populations. ► Connecting CTE to employer/workforce priorities.

  12. Career Clusters and Career Pathways An organizing tool defining CTE using broad clusters of occupations and pathways with validated standards that ensure opportunities for all students regardless of their career goals and interests.“ www.careerclusters.org

  13. Colorado Career Clusters A framework within six CTE Industry Sectors: • Agricultural and Natural Resources • STEM, Arts, Design and Informational Technology • Skilled Trades and Technical Sciences • Health Sciences and Public Safety • Hospitality, Human Services and Education &Training and • Business and Public Administration

  14. 17 Career Clusters

  15. Strategy #1: CTE Plans of Study • A visual that links high school academic courses, CTE courses, CTE postsecondary programs and careers; • Coherent and rigorous content aligned to standards -- coordinated, non-duplicated courses; • Shows articulation opportunities for postsecondary education credits; • Organized by Career Pathways within Career Clusters

  16. What Is A CTE Plan Of Study • A “road map” to Students’ career goals • Flexible, allowing students to explore and update their plans • A student planning tool that defines career opportunities • A student retention strategy • A career counseling/advising tool • A visual demonstration of the progression of learning • A means to empower students to take responsibility for career planning

  17. Strategy #2: Accountability Measuring results of CTE student achievement: • Academic and skill attainment • 10th grade CSAP results; reading/math • Technical assessments • Student retention and CTE program completion • High school completion & Graduation rates • Secondary CTE program completion rates • Postsecondary Certificates/Degrees Granted rates • Student transitions upon program completion • Employment, military, advanced education

  18. State established targets based on benchmarks Local Recipients agree to State targets or negotiate targets (per designated procedure) CCCS disseminates annual Performance Metrics, disaggregated by U.S. Dept. of Ed. designated sub-populations per recipient Local Plan Objectives based on Performance Metrics and additional improvement plans if miss target(s) Performance Metrics

  19. Strategy #3: Project-Based Focus Requirements for Local Activities: Meeting Performance Targets: • Local Plan Projects, one per Performance Metric • Performance target is project objective • Local Improvement plan if target missed • Performance Target Negotiations

  20. Requirements for Local Uses of Funds: Improving Programs: Local Plan projects aligned to: Local long-term and short-term strategic plans State CTE strategic plan Requirements of Perkins Active involvement by stakeholders Web-enabled submittal of Local Plan One Plan of Study Strategic Deployment of Funds

  21. Strategy #4: Technical Assessments • Aligned with industry-recognized standards, if available • Valid and reliable • Difficulty in obtaining the data of industry-based assessments • Limits to availability and affordability of other valid and reliable assessments

  22. CCCS research, training, development about content, instruction, assessment Capacity building with CTE teachers about content, instruction, assessment Piloting developed assessments Analysis of pilots Readjustments based on pilot analysis Implementation of content, instruction, assessments aligned with industry standards Technical Assessment Phases

  23. Strategy #5: Academic Integration ►Rigorous and challenging ►Identify inherent academic content and teach through applied lessons ►Math in CTE Research project ►Full integration of academic course content and CTE content, allowing academic credit for CTE course

  24. Steps Toward Academic Integration Create crosswalks of academic standards resident in CTE curriculum www.coloradocte.com Prioritize academic standards Create clear processes for how to integrate academic content in CTE courses Provide professional development on these processes Share model lesson plans for academic integration
