Grants to local California educational agencies, school districts, and others to develop K-14 career oriented programs to ready students for occupations that address local and regional needs. Workshops will be held from November 6 through December 3. This opportunity covers first year funding to establish groups of interested parties to discuss and explore local workforce issues and how the creation of career pathways can help address these shortages.
Applicants must target K–14 career pathway programs that provide students with a sequenced pathway of integrated academic and career-based education and training, aligned to current or emerging regional economic needs. Career pathway programs are designed to lead students to a postsecondary degree or certification in a high-skill, high-wage, and high-growth field.
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.
Career pathway programs may be delivered through high schools, ROCPs, CTE Centers, CPAs or other career academies, alternative education programs, continuation schools, programs administered by county offices of education, adult education programs, or community colleges.
Allowable expenditures may include, but are not limited to, the following:
• Service contracts between members of the consortium or external service providers and technical assistants.
• Costs to extend or create a new non-profit intermediary organization to link employers and educational institutions with a primary purpose of aggregating and making available work opportunities for students. Such an entity could convene and lead stakeholders, research labor market needs and align supply and demand for work-based learning, and communicate the purpose and goal of the career pathway initiative within the region.
• Professional development to enhance teaching and learning, including collaborative secondary and postsecondary development of aligned curriculum and instruction.
• Training and planning meetings between consortium personnel, including counselors, teachers, parents, college faculty, and business leaders, to support the program and build awareness in the regions on the benefits for having such programs.
• Postsecondary curriculum development that facilitates alignment and articulation with secondary programs leading to college degrees and/or other industry- recognized credentials that meet the needs of employers.
• Funds necessary to develop a joint powers authority.
