Career Technical Education Pathways Initiative
California Community Colleges, Chancellor's Office
California's education system--the largest in the United States--is an essential resource for ensuring strong economic growth in the state. The Career Technical Education Pathways Initiative (referred to as the Initiative in this report), which became law in 2005, brings together community colleges, K-12 school districts, employers, organized labor and community partners to strengthen the connection between school and work. By focusing on priorities such as career pathways and articulation, expanding business and industry engagement and teacher recruitment and professional development, the Initiative enables educational institutions to integrate core academic coursework with technical and occupational knowledge and skills. This double skill set makes students competitive for high-wage careers and prepares them for transfer to four-year colleges. Following an introduction, this report includes the following: (1) Quick facts related to the Initiative, including a cumulative overview of participants and partnerships; (2) Key recommendations based on the evaluation study; (3) Initiative highlights illustrating the key recommendations in action; and (4) A table of all Initiative-funded grant types since 2005.
