Career Technical Education Pathways Initiative Annual Report
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 (the Initiative) became law in 2005 with Senate Bills 70 and 1133 and provided more than $380 million over eight years to improve career technical education (CTE) in California. The Initiative brought together community colleges, K-12 school districts, adult schools, Regional Occupational Centers and Programs (ROCP), employers, workforce investment boards, economic agencies, organized labor, and community partners to strengthen the connection between school and careers. The overarching goal of the Initiative was to better prepare California students to seek and succeed in jobs that require high-level skills and pay high wages, with a particular emphasis on meeting the needs of students in underserved groups. This report highlights the initiatives activities in the 2013-14 fiscal year. These include increasing the number and quality of career pathways and career technical education courses, increasing enrollment in career technical education programs of students in underserved groups, and engaging business and industry groups to collaborate with schools to provide internships.
