Whereas during the past five years students in local high schools have been enrolled in school-to-career educational programs that have incorporated work-based activities into their classes, and
Whereas teachers in these feeder schools have been redesigning general education curriculum to include aspects of the world of work, and
Whereas community college faculty have been encouraged to incorporate SCANS (Secretary's Commission on Acquiring Necessary Skills) recommendations into their curriculum,
Resolved that the Academic Senate support and promote faculty and student involvement in learning about the evolving world of work.
The Academic Senate has a strong voice in both EDWPAC and in CCCAOE. There is good coordination between high schools and community colleges in CTE thanks to the Career Pathways project.
