    Career and Technical

  • Establish a clear system goal of career and college readiness for all students.All students need a strong arsenal of reading, comprehension, reasoning, problem-solving and personal skills to be ready for the world of meaningful post secondary education and training as well as entry into the high-skilled workplace.
  • Create a positive school culture that stresses personalization in planning and decision-making.
    At a minimum, every student should be led through a process of academic and career awareness, exploration, and individualized planning for graduation and beyond that will guide the high school experience.
  • Dramatically improve how and where academic content is taught.
    Integration of academic competencies into CTE curricula and of real-world content and applied methods and examples into traditional academic classes can raise student achievement levels and increase understanding of rigorous concepts.
  • Create incentives for students to pursue the core curriculum in an interest-based context.
    From across the school reform spectrum, there is ample evidence that connecting rigorous academic expectations with the relevance of an interest-based curriculum can help connect students to learning in powerful ways.
