Creating Career and Technical Education Pathways That Support Equitable Opportunities for Students

Event Details

May 27, 2020

Future Ready SchoolsⓇ (FRS) believes that every child, no matter the child’s zip code or family income, can graduate from high school and deserves access to a clear pathway to postsecondary success and robust learning experiences that prepare students for an increasingly technology-driven workforce and world. Districts around the country are doing this by creating innovative career and technical education (CTE) opportunities to provide students with technical skills, academic skills, and employability skills. According to SkillUSA, CTE is important for all students “regardless of whether students are headed for college or the workforce. [T]his type of education will help them prepare for the future. In fact, college-bound students can get job experiences to help them define their career plans, identify an appropriate course of study, and help pay for tuition.” 

In this webinar, Superintendent Michael McCormick and Doug Henderson, director of STEAM and CTE, will share how Val Verde Unified School District (VVUSD) in California “provid[es] students with a comprehensive education that includes critical thinking and problem-solving skills to prepare them with technical, academic, and employability skills for success in the workplace and in postsecondary education.” VVUSD’s students choose an interest-based CTE pathway.
