The Why of PROGRAMS OF STUDY

  • PROGRAMS OF STUDY ARE DESIGNED TO:

    Assist learners of all ages to make more intentional educational/career decisions:

    • Include coherent sequence of courses both required and elective (where possible)

    • Begin in high school or middle school progressing through college/university

    • Educational programs fall within a pathway from the Minnesota framework (the wheel)

  • Process & Strategies for Aligning Curriculum

III. REGIONAL ADVISORY BOARD PARTICIPATION

IV. Regional Perkins IV – SC Perkins Consortium participation & support in conjunction with local meeting(s) & information gathering.


I. SCOPE & SEQUENCE AT SECONDARY & POST-SECONARY LEVELS

  • Each Secondary partner examines their own course offerings, required courses, Career & Technical Education & other electives – Information is shared through Course Registration materials & Programs of Study templates

  • Post-Secondary College partner examines their course offerings by Discipline – Program of Study area and offers a recommended course sequence for students registering for program of study


II. TECH PREP COLLEGE CREDIT PROCESS & NEGOTIATIONS

  • Certificates are negotiated regionally every other Fall – course objectives are reviewed for existing certificates, updates in language, software editions, etc. are discussed and reviewed – updates are made to certificates as agreed upon by consensus of group in attendance.

  • New certificates are negotiated regionally by similar review process utilizing College’s Common Course Outlines and determining language that will appear on certificate that is understandable & accessible for group in attendance.


III. Regional Advisory Board participation

  • High school partners are invited to become members of the College’s Regional Advisory Board.

  • Part of the agenda of Advisory Boards is the discussion of the curriculum – current offerings and potential changes to the curriculum as suggested by industry’s trends and shifts that need to happen at both the secondary & post-secondary training levels.


IV. SC Perkins Consortium participation/support in conjunction with local meeting(s) & workdays

  • Consortium provides leadership, resources and information about Programs of Study to all members.

  • Independent school districts convene local meetings, determine course offerings, potential Programs of Study options at their respective school, complete data collection of information & submit data to Consortium office for input into electronic database system. District determines method, usage & dissemination of information at local level.
