  • 2008-2009

  • As I stated in my recent State of Education
    address, we must eliminate current inequities and
    give all students a chance at a more hopeful
    future than the present. Closing the achievement
    gap is central to that goal. To do so, high
    schools need to offer programs that engage and
    motivate students and the multiple pathways
    approach is a promising strategy that deserves
    our immediate attention.
  • Jack OConnell
  • State Superintendent of Public Instruction

Multiple Pathways Planning Approach
  • Prepares all students for success after high
    school regardless of their preparation prior to
    entering high school.
  • Is appropriate for any student regardless of
    postsecondary goals. Students graduate prepared
    to pursue a full range of options two-year and
    four-year colleges, technical colleges,
    apprenticeships, formal employer training
    programs, or education through the military.
  • Challenges students by providing a rigorous
    college-preparatory curriculum, which
    specifically meets the eligibility requirements
    for application to Californias public colleges
    and universities.
  • Engages students by making school relevant. By
    integrating academic and technical curricula,
    offering work-based learning opportunities, and
    setting learning in the context of real-world
    application, students are able to see academic
    principles in action.
  • Allows students to select a context for
    learning that interests them by offering a choice
    of pathways. One school may offer programs in
    three industry sectors, or, if it can only offer
    one sector, it may coordinate with other local
    schools to provide access to other pathways.
  • Supports students who need help to succeed in
    their programs by providing academic assistance
    to master a challenging curriculum.
  • Ensures students have a plan for the future by
    informing them of what they need to do in high
    school to achieve their postsecondary goals and
    helping them develop an action plan to get there.
  • Is flexible enough to allow schools to adapt it
    to their local context, selecting theme(s) and
    developing or adopting curriculum relevant to
    their communities.

Pathways in Action
  • Each pathway offers an integrated approach
    to learning. The core academic courses
    systematically take advantage of the pathways
    theme to introduce authentic applications of
    essential academic knowledge.
  • GEOMETRY Students learn the concepts and skills
    needed to build roofs and frame walls that
    withstand gale-force winds.
  • PRE-CALCULUS Students study the role of
    mathematics in designing and building a
    seismically sound Bay Bridge.
  • HISTORY Students learn how the built environment
    reflects and shapes culture, politics, and the
  • ENGLISH Students master technical reading and
    writing, and gain appreciation for relevant
    literature, such as Pulitzer Prize winner Tracy
    Kidders House, a compelling nonfiction account
    of building the American dream.
  • TECHNICAL COURSES Students learn
    occupation-specific skillscarpentry,
    electricity, and masonryand study fundamental
    principles of engineering and design, project and
    site planning, construction management, and
    emerging technologies. They gain a foundation of
    industry knowledge and skills applicable to a
    wide range of career opportunities in the world
    of building and environmental design.
  • WORK-BASED LEARNING Ninth- and tenth-graders are
    connected to mentors in fields such as
    architecture, construction, or interior design.
    High school juniors and seniors engage in more
    intensive internships, working
  • alongside professionals who assess their work
    against industry standards. They also participate
    in school-based enterprises such as home
    building, design services, or community
    environmental projects.
  • SUPPLEMENTAL SERVICES Additional support,
    especially instruction in reading and
    mathematics, helps students master high levels of
    academic and technical knowledge. Like the core
    academic classes, supplemental courses take
    advantage of the pathways theme to give meaning

Advisory Committees
  • New individual school advisories need to be
    developed to include community, business,
    educational and professional members.
  • Ideally, schools should develop individual
    advisories for each of their pathways as well as
    a CTE leadership team for the entire school.

Business Community Partnerships
  • What do we both gain from this relationship?
  • Advice and recommendations for courses,
    internships, mentorships and pathway designs.
  • Connecting core academics to authentic
  • Providing professional development for teachers
    and counselors.
  • Accountability for technical content standards,
    curriculum development and all forms of
  • Chances for everyone to better understand the
    marketplace of real world applications and
  • Advertisement, marketing and creation of
    work-based learning which is closely coordinated
    with classroom instruction while teaming teachers
    with industry experts.

Articulation Needs
  • Between Middle Schools High Schools regarding…
  • Course selection
  • Pathway choices development
  • Individual career plans
  • Curriculum, standards and framework review

Articulation Needs
  • Between High Schools and Post Secondary
  • 22 options for high school students
  • A-G options for many CTE courses
  • Multiple Pathways developed with connections to
    universities, community colleges, and other post
    secondary options.
  • Grants written that align high school through
    baccalaureate levels of education.
  • Accountability and assessment of pathways and
    programs of study.

  • Maintain the exceptional facilities already in
    place within the SDUHSD.
  • Short and long term facility planning process
    that will meet the needs of multiple pathways and
    programs of study.
  • Alternative use studies of any existing facility
    undergoing shelf-life discussion.
  • Build new and cutting edge facilities to attract
    new or private school students to the district.

Shared Vision Leadership
  • Scheduling and instructional time needs
    flexibility and new spending options.
  • Assessing student learning by incorporating new
    measures of mastery of industry-defined knowledge
    and skills in addition to core academic
    learning's in our state accountability system.
  • CTE graduation requirements changed from 5 to 10
    units starting with the class of 2012.
  • Additional time for staff development.
  • Create advanced placement (AP) credit courses for
    CTE course and pathways.

CTE Individual School Initiatives
  • Use the SDUHSD CTE vision and initiative to begin
    building your own we wills.
  • Build your Advisory teams from key stakeholders
    which must include students.
  • Consolidate your multiple pathways to meet
    student desires and financial constraints.
  • Know why and where you are headed!
