Presentation Transcript

  1. Designing a Quality Pathway through a Program of Study

  2. Determining Themes: Factors to Consider • Labor market demands • College connections • Student interest • Partnerships • Community resources • Successful programs • Facilities • Staff interest

  3. Why Themes? • Context and purpose • Provides relevance and connections for the students • Provides a common ground for content specific teachers to talk and plan • Connection for business/community Bck

  4. Industry Sectors and Organizing Themes

  5. Math Science English Social Studies Prepared for College and Careers Technical Core/Theme Back

  9. CTE Course Sequence CTE Course 1 CTE Course 2 CTE Course 3 CTE Course 4

  10. Tools Needed • Ed Code section 51225.3 and 51228 http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/calaw.html • UC a-g requirements • www.ucop.edu/a-gGuide/ag/search.html • District graduation requirements http://www.portervilleschools.org/PUSDHome/ParentInfo/tabid/545/Default.aspx • District approved set of courses http://studata.sandi.net/saa/course_info.asp • CDE CTE Framework http://www.cde.ca.gov/ci/ct/sf/ • Program of Study Examples http://www.connectedcalifornia.org/pathways/pathways.php

  11. Lets get started! • What is the CTE course sequence?

  12. Industry Sector: Engineering and DesignCareer Pathway: Engineering TechCTE Course Sequence: Project Lead the Way Courses Terminology Introduction to Engineering and Design Principles Of Engineering Engineering Design and Development 1-2 Engineering Design and Development 3 - 4 * http://www.pltw.org/Engineering/Curriculum/Curriculum-high-school.cfm

  13. Next Step • What are the academic requirements? • What flexibility do you have in where these courses are placed? • Is there a testing ramification to course placement? • What needs to be added for the UC a-g requirements?

  16. Additional Components • Work-based Learning • Support Services

  17. Work-based Learning • Sequenced • Coordinated • Scaled

  18. Sequenced • Guest Speaker • Company tour/Field Trip/Visit • Job Shadow • Service Learning • Student-run Enterprise • Virtual Apprenticeship • Teacher Externship • Mentor/Tutor • Internship • Project Related Internship • Authentic Assessment Less Intense More Intense

  19. Sequenced • Guest Speaker • Company Tour/Field Trip/Visit • Job Shadow • Service Learning • Student Run Enterprise • Virtual Apprenticeship • Teacher Externship • Mentor/Tutor • Internship • Project Related Internship • Authentic Assessment 9th Grade 12th Grade

  20. Support Services • Bridge programs – Summer of 8th grade • Credit recovery programs, online courses • Summer School • Afterschool Tutoring/Mentoring • Extended Day/Summer School • Student Advisory Periods

  21. Master Schedule Development • Determine type of schedule 4x4, 4x8, 6x2, 7x2, modified block, etc, • Enrollment projections • Student Support needs • Class loading • Number of teachers needed • Student cohorts

  22. Master Schedule Timeline September October November December February March/April May June/July • Planning • Design Program of Study • Determine specific Course offerings • Develop catalog of courses • Student articulation rising 9th graders • Scheduling current students • Finalizing master schedule • Summer planning

  23. Common Issues • Can’t fit it all in to current schedule • Can’t afford to have Technical Core in grades 9-12 • ROP doesn’t support the earlier grades • School doesn’t have the resources • CTE doesn’t meet grad requirements or UC a-g • Can’t we just embed theme into academic core • CPA grant is restrictive • Classes are not pure • 9th grade academy model prohibits four year Program of Study

  24. Next Steps • Additional support needed • Identification of PD/TA providers
