California Education Code sections : (a) This article establishes the Health Science and Medical Technology Project, administered by the State Department of Education to provide competitive grant funds to California public schools offering grades 7 to 12, inclusive, to enhance existing or establish new health- related career pathway programs……
(b) Funding provided for the purposes of this article shall be used for any of the following purposes: standards-based curriculum development, development of a sequence of courses in selected pathways, program articulation in grades 7 to 14, inclusive, material and equipment, student support, work-based learning experiences, and professional development.
Use of Funds A.20% FTE has been allowed for project coordination – no other salary exceptions No other coordination salaries are allowable – such as Cal-HOSA advisors, middle school JUMP advisors, work based learning advisors, evaluation and data collection personnel, community liaisons, nor other district or site personnel
Curriculum and Articulation Stipends for integrated CTE standards- based curriculum development, development of a sequence of courses, and program articulation in grades 7 to 14 are not extra duty pay based on a monthly formula.
Curriculum and Articulation Stipends are for product development, not meetings in which products are not evident. Pathway coordination activities should be accomplished through the pathway coordinator as supported by the grant Stipends are paid on product-based activities as indicated in legislation
Curriculum and Articulation Curriculum developed will be submitted to CDE for web site, Stipends must be at the approved and usual site rate Total stipends for an individual are limited to $4, per person Substitute pay is allowable for pathway activities
Material and Equipment Equipment and textbook purchases should be for new pathway start up or enhancement of an existing pathway. This grant clearly does not allow supplanting Supplemental books and resources not found in other classrooms as appropriate to the pathways are great and allowable
Materials and Equipment Cal-HOSA is integrated into existing curriculum and may require minimal material purchases Cal-HOSA does not have curriculum but some supplemental learning materials are available
Student Support/Work-based Learning Transportation for all students in pathway bus – no individual tickets for travel Cal-HOSA jackets, scrubs, other classroom or required workplace learning equipment See for additional student optionswww.cal-hosa.org
Professional Development Conferences and workshops must be directly related to CTE pathway Professional development must be available to grades 7-14 pathway team
Evaluation and Data Collection Data collection plan will require a three- fold method: 1) The use of a teacher self-reported accountability pathway assessment 2) Surveys and interviews with selected students 3) Student school records
Evaluation and Data Collection Students served in the pathway or number of pathway students served Student grade point average Student attendance Student completion/graduation rates Student work-based learning placements Number of work-based learning hours completed by each student
Evaluation and Data Collection Cal-HOSA membership Students enrolling in postsecondary education Students passing portions of the California High School Exit Examination Students perceptions about the effectiveness of the pathway Number of students planning to pursue a health-related field
