Register now for an upcoming NASDCTEc webinar: States Lead Development of Statewide POS, where key states share story and their strategies to develop statewide programs of study (POS).
When: The webinar is Tuesday, March 8 at 3 p.m. Eastern Time.
Career technical education programs are dedicated to preparing students to succeed in life and work.Â Â However, exactly how CTE programs prepare students vary and consequently so do studentsâ€™ levels of success. To encourage consistency and offer the best learning experiences for students, some states are spearheading efforts to build systems structured by commonly-defined programs of study (POS).Â Â
With the help of a technical assistance grant from OVAE, Georgia, Illinois, New Jersey, Ohio and Oregon have made headway in developing POS.Â While you can read about each statesâ€™ process and progress in a paper NASDCTEc will publish later this week, we are inviting you to participate in a webinar to hear from three of the state team leads. They will illuminate the statewide POS development process by sharing how OVAEâ€™s 10-component framework informed their work and by giving a behind-the-scenes look at one of their milestone achievements. Speakers include:
- John Pritchett, Georgia: Secondary/postsecondary alignment
- Brian Durham, Illinois: POS Expectation Tool
- Tom Thompson, Oregon: Standards-based POS
Donâ€™t miss this opportunity to learn from those who have already begun the development of a statewide model POS. For questions, please contact Emma Heirman, NASDCTEc Special Projects Consultant at firstname.lastname@example.org.
