Perkins & Pathways: How the New Federal Career and Technical Education Law Supports College and Career Pathways and High-Quality Linked Learning Webinar/EventSeptember 26, 2018
This webinar will provide an overview of what’s in the new law, which will go into effect on July 1, 2019, plus how the new law can specifically support the implementation of high-quality Linked Learning in California. The webinar will also highlight specific strategies that educators and community members can use to inform the development of the state plans required under the new law. Similar to the state plans required under the Every Student Succeeds Act, states must develop plans describing how they plan to implement the Perkins law to ensure that all students are truly college and career ready upon graduating from high school.

Linked Learning: Using Learning Time Creatively to Prepare Students for College and a Career Webinar/EventSeptember 11, 2014
California recently made significant strides in promoting a college- and career-ready agenda through a $250 million investment that encourages regional partnerships among K–12 schools, higher education institutions, and businesses to implement promising strategies for creating a well-equipped twenty-first-century workforce, and the state is poised to double that investment. Much of this work is spearheaded through Linked Learning, which is an approach to education that transforms the traditional high school experience by blending core academic content with career-based learning in the classroom and real-world workplace experiences. This approach benefits from additional time for effective implementation of its strategies.
