3 Career and Technical Education Matters 0 According to the US DOE: Over the next decade, 2/3 of all jobs will require a post secondary education 0 In Knox County Schools, 86% of students who are in a structured CTE pathway program in high school obtain at least an Associates Degree 0 At Pellissippi State, Career Programs have experienced a 38% growth rate over the past five years 0 At Pellissippi State, the placement rate for graduates of Career Programs was 94 percent in

4 The Opportunity

5 Knox County Schools Strategic Plan 0 The district’s CTE programs will be rigorous, relevant, project-based, and focused on preparing students for both post-secondary education and careers. 0 We must overcome the misleading perceptions that have become attached to career and technical education or “vocational education.” 0 The Knox County schools will explore the feasibility of developing a career and technical education charter or magnet high school in Knox County.

6 Pellissippi State Strategic Plan Innovative Instructional Programs: Pellissippi State will expand instructional programs, diversify delivery options and modes of instruction, and develop new programs for target populations in collaboration with business and industry to address work force needs. 0 Community Connections: Pellissippi State will expand outreach through connections in the community and partnerships with business, industry, and other educational providers at higher education and training agencies.

7 Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act 2013 Reauthorization 0 Alignment: 0 Ensuring that the skills taught in CTE programs reflect the actual needs of the labor market so that CTE students acquire the 21st century skills necessary for in-demand occupations within high-growth industry sectors. 0 High wage, high demand, high skill

8 Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act 2013 Reauthorization 0 Collaboration: 0 Incentivizing secondary schools, institutions of higher education, employers, and industry partners to work together to ensure that all CTE programs offer students high-quality learning opportunities.

9 Tennessee Public Chapter 967 Enacted Process dictated by legislation calling for the University of Tennessee and Tennessee Board of Regents to cooperate with secondary schools to adapt college-level courses to be taught within high schools with college-level assessment.

10 Dual Enrollment 0 Dual Enrollment allows high school students to earn college and high school credit for the same course 0 Students enroll in college-level courses taught at either their high school or at Pellissippi State 0 Students may take any class for which they meet the prerequisites and/or eligibility requirements and save money in the process.

11 Dual Enrollment 0 New faculty hired by Knox County Schools Career and Technical Education meet Pellissippi State’s credentialing requirements under the Southern Association of colleges and Schools (SACS) 0 Knox County Schools Career and Technical Education aligned each of the learning outcomes in their courses with those of Pellissippi State’s to facilitate greater opportunities for dual enrollment and articulation 0 Pellissippi State offers several dual enrollment Career and Technical Education courses

12 Strawberry Plains Campus 0 In 2012, Pellissippi State acquired a three-story 223,000 square-foot facility formerly housing Philips Consumer Electronics’ East Tennessee headquarters, but left vacant for several years 0 The facility is on 32.6 acres in the eastern portion of Knox County and serves an area of the county with limited access to higher educational opportunities 0 Classes began in fall 2012, with 200 students enrolled 0 Fall 2014, 305 students enrolled.
