Description
Many of our traditionally underserved students struggle to find meaning and purpose in our current educational system with abstract, highly theoretical courses that do not apply to real life. The proposed CTE program would allow students relevant coursework that integrates conceptual topics into hands-on learning that will benefit our students now and into the future. Our school district values our partnership with Mt. San Jacinto College (MSJC) and we work closely aligning our CTE Pathways in order to ensure robust feeder patterns. Our students would be able to transition directly into the MSJC Building and Construction Trades program to enhance their postsecondary experience and pursue certificates in the construction industry. We also continue to build our partnership with Cal Poly Pomona and Cal State San Bernardino. Both universities offer degrees in Construction Management and other closely related fields. Our district ensures that CTE Pathways at the high school level and postsecondary level mirror the region's high priority industry sectors.

Description
While the pathway was conceived as a response to COVID-19, Community Health Workers (CHW) have an important role in addressing the many health outcome disparities in underserved communities. The overarching objectivel is to increase the number of CHW who test and trace people suspected of having COVID-19. We will develop a culturally and linguistically sensitive COVID-19 pathway to meet the state’s labor market needs and to ensure upward social and economic mobility for our students in our four Inland Empire schools. Along with our Master of Public Health (MPH) partners, we will develop and implement a high quality K-12 curriculum that prepares students for a robust CHW certificate program. Courses will be delivered via a distance learning system. The objective is to strengthen our intersegmental partnership with Chaffey College and offer a capstone dual enrollment course selected from their online CHW program offerings. Students will have the opportunity to earn Bloodborne Pathogens, First Aid/CPR/AED, OSHA10-Health and COVID-19 Contact Tracing certification, to provide employment opportunities.
Students will have access to a CTE counselor and student support specialist who provides educational planning, career, academic, and dual enrollment and support the growth of external partnerships to ensure student success in high school and beyond. This comprehensive support is a critical component of a pathway designed for an Opportunity Youth student population and is often the difference between graduation and transition to post-secondary education, and leaving High School without a diploma. Students will be able to access all counseling and coursework remotely until in-person instruction resumes.

Description
To address the retention of students in high school CTE programs and increase the number of capstone completers, our SWP project objectives aim to increase earlier exposure to career awareness and exploration. Each of the objectives will include a focus on the access and engagement gaps for our Students With Disabilities, English Learners and Foster Youths. The objectives are to enhance the curriculum in middle school CTE classes to increase career awareness and exploration. The curriculum will connect to CTE pathways in our high schools and community colleges aligned to the IEDRC priority sectors targeting our traditionally underserved student populations. Funds will be used for teacher release time and professional development for curriculum refinement and the purchase of equipment, materials and supplies to increase career based hands-on activities in CTE exploratory courses. Another objective is to increase 6-8 grade engagement and awareness of CTE programs at our high schools and community colleges, aligned to the IEDRC priority sectors, and target student populations that are traditionally underserved. We hope to expand career awareness and exploration opportunities to the entire 6-8 grade student body, not just to students in CTE courses. Funds will be used for middle school students and staff to visit high school and community colleges. As part of a community-wide CTE awareness campaign, we will market and promote the value of CTE pathways for all students including those on an A-G track. Funds will be used to provide professional development for teachers and counselors as well as the creation of CTE marketing and promotional materials.
