Grants are available to California universities, educational agencies, and others for educational programs that prepare K-14 students to meet current or anticipated local and regional workforce needs. Letters of Intent are due February 14, 2014. Applicants can apply as local or regional consortia (which include a business partner) to provide students with career-based courses of education leading to positions in high-skill, high-wage, and high-growth fields.

The overarching goal of the CCPT is to build robust partnerships between employers, schools, and community colleges in order to better prepare students for the 21st century workplace and improve student transition into postsecondary education, training, and employment.

The long-term measure of success for the CCPT is the number of participating students who complete high school, transition successfully into an aligned postsecondary program, graduate with a degree or credential in a high-demand field, and successfully secure employment.

To accomplish this goal, successful applicants will:

1. Establish or strengthen existing regional collaborative relationships and partnerships between business entities, community organizations, and educational agencies.

2. Develop and integrate standards-based academics with a career-relevant, sequenced curriculum following industry-themed pathways that are aligned to high-skill, high-wage, high-growth jobs, or emerging regional economic sectors.

3. Provide articulated pathways to postsecondary education aligned with regional economies.

4. Leverage and build on any of the following:

• Existing structures, requirements, and resources of the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Improvement Act of 2006, California Partnership Academies, and Regional Occupational Centers and Programs (ROCPs) including staff knowledge, community relationships, and course development.

• Matching resources and in-kind contributions from public, private, and philanthropic sources.

• The California Community Colleges Economic and Workforce Development Program and its sector strategies and deputy sector navigators.

• Participation in the local California Community Colleges Skills Panel.

Career pathways programs may be delivered through high schools, ROCPs, California Partnership Academies or other career academies, alternative education programs, continuation schools, programs administered by county offices of education, adult education programs, or community colleges.
