Technology Centers That Work: An Enhanced Design to Get All Students to Standards
Southern Regional Education Board (SREB)
Founded in 2007, the "Technology Centers That Work" (TCTW) school improvement model is designed to assist shared-time technology centers in preparing graduates for postsecondary studies and employment in high-demand, high-wage, high-skill fields. "TCTW" was modified from SREB's "High Schools That Work" ("HSTW") design to address shared-time centers' specific challenges. Like "HSTW," "TCTW" is an effort-based model founded on the conviction that most students can master rigorous career/technical (CT) and academic studies if schools create an environment that motivates them to make the effort to succeed. This paper describes the "TCTW" enhanced design for school improvement, including the "TCTW" framework of Goals and Key Practices, recommended curriculum, and key conditions for accelerating student achievement. It outlines what participating states and technology centers agree to do and discusses how to collaborate with Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) to better prepare students for postsecondary studies, advanced training and careers.
