Only a few decades ago, schools and institutions generally tracked students into one of two paths: college or career. Today, the nation appears to be at a tipping point of unanimity that all students must be prepared for further education and careers. New expectations consequently require us to develop new standards that reflect our interest in preparing students in both areas.
Today, NASDCTEc is releasing an issue brief, CTE and College and Career Ready Standards: Preparing Students for Further Education and Careers, to illustrate how a state agency and an industry partner addressed integrating CTE with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).
Please join us this afternoon at 3:00 pm EST for a webinar to further discuss this theme. Robin Harris and Tom Foster will describe Kansas’ descriptive analysis study to examine the common elements between the Career Clusters Essential Knowledge and Skills Statements and the CCSS. Nancy Null will talk about Cisco Networking Academy and its framework for integrating and aligning CTE-related components with the CCSS.
