17Curriculum 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.
18Curriculum and Articulation Stipends are for product development, not meetings in which products are not evident.

25Evaluation and Data Collection Students served in the pathway or number of pathway students servedStudent grade point averageStudent attendanceStudent completion/graduation ratesStudent work-based learning placementsNumber of work-based learning hours completed by each student
26Evaluation and Data Collection Cal-HOSA membershipStudents enrolling in postsecondary educationStudents passing portions of the California High School Exit ExaminationStudents’ perceptions about the effectiveness of the pathwayNumber of students planning to pursue a health-related field
