11 Career Pathways and Technical Education Advisory Task Force (Minnesota Session Laws 2013, Chapter 116, Article 2, Section 18)

12 The 2013 Legislature charged MDE with convening a 21-member Career Pathways and Technical Education Advisory Task Force to recommend ways to structurally redesign secondary and postsecondary education to:

13 improve secondary and postsecondary outcomes for students and adult learners; align secondary and postsecondary education programs serving students and adult learners; align secondary and postsecondary education programs and Minnesota’s workforce needs; and measure and evaluate the combined efficacy of Minnesota’s public kindergarten through grade 12 and postsecondary education programs.

14 Fourteen of the 21 Task Force members were appointed by various organizations: Minnesota Association of Career and Technical Administrators Minnesota Association for Career and Technical Education National Research Center for Career and Technical Education Minnesota Association of Colleges for Teacher Education Minnesota Business Partnership Julie Warner, Wright Technical Center Sue Boehland, Freshwater Education District Pradeep Kotamraju, Deputy Director Rhea Walker, Winona State University Sharon Jensen, Coldspring Granite Company

15 Minnesota Association of Secondary School Principals Minnesota Association of School Administrators Minnesota School Counselors Association Minnesota Association of Charter Schools Education Minnesota University of Minnesota Dave Adney, Executive Director John Christiansen, Dakota County Tech Jim Bierma, University of Minnesota Eugene Piccolo, Executive Director Rob Simonich, Ely High School David R. Johnson, College of Education

16 Minnesota State Colleges and Universities Minnesota Chambers of Commerce Ed Schones, Saint Paul College Damon Kapke, Lake Superior College Amy Walstein, Director, Education & Workforce Development

17 Seven were appointed through the Open Appointments process of the Secretary of State: DEED Minnesota Board of Teaching Commissioner of Education Alyssa Klein, Rehabilitation Services Jim Grabowska, MN State University, Mankato Karen Hynick, MnSCU Sean Roy, PACER Center Julie Halverson, Osseo Schools Richard Rosivach, Irondale High School Sonja Simpson, North Hennepin Community College

18 The Task Force will consider how to: Better inform students about career options, occupational trends, and educational paths leading to viable and rewarding careers and reduce the gap between the demand for and preparation of a skilled Minnesota workforce; in consultation with a student’s family, develop and periodically adapt, as needed, an education and work plan for each student aligned with the student’s personal and professional interests, abilities, skills, and aspirations;

19 improve monitoring of high school students’ progress with targeted interventions and support and remove the need for remedial instruction; increase and accelerate opportunities for secondary students to earn postsecondary credits leading to a certificate, industry license, or degree; better align high school courses and expectations and postsecondary credit-bearing courses;

20 better align high school standards and assessments, postsecondary readiness measures and entrance requirements, and the expectations of Minnesota employers; increase the rates at which students complete a postsecondary certificate, industry license, or degree; provide graduates of two-year and four-year postsecondary institutions with the foundational skills needed for civic engagement, ongoing employment, and continuous learning.

23 Common Career Technical Core

24 State CTE Standards: General Findings State approved CTE standards more common at secondary than postsecondary Most states describe CTE according to National Career Clusters framework--few have adopted it in ways that affects CTE instruction Secondary CTE programs driven by Perkins monitoring; postsecondary CTE programs are driven by accreditation Nearly all states: programs of study with sequence of courses secondary to postsecondary—few: post secondary standards for POS. Mismatch between current state CTE standards (seconday course level) and CCTC, (end of program of study level).

25 Technical Skill Assessments “ A hand full of states have developed technical skill assessments, aligned to the state CTE standards…take into account relevant industry standards…evaluate whether students have mastered full range of knowledge and skills within a CTE program of study…allows for comparability… reinforces the use of CTE standards…includes Minnesota”

26 State CTE Standards: Next Steps Fill the Postsecondary CTE Standards Gap Implementation of Standards with Fidelity Continued Progress on Programs of Study Implementation of the Common Career Technical Core

27 State adoption/implementation Common Career Technical Core Formally adopt CCTC as anchor standards- revise state standards Adopt CCTC as new statewide CTE standards, replace existing standards Require CCTC as standards for state approved Programs of Study Require CCTC in state standards development and revision. education/cctc/

28 State Formal Adoption: Common Career Technical Core Adopt all Career Ready Practices. Adopt all career cluster and career pathway standards for all career clusters and pathways used in the state. Establish CCTC as end of program of study standards that bridge and impact CTE secondary and postsecondary standards curriculum and courses. Address related policies impacted by the new standards and/or to ensure implementation of the new standards. education/cctc/

35 Technical Skill Attainment (TSA) Perkins Core Indicators 2S1 and 1P1 Reporting Requirements and Issues

36 Required Use of Assessments Beginning in FY15 each consortium should be testing in at least seven Programs of Study (including one Rigorous POS) using a state approved assessment instrument.

37 Reports and Improvement Plans Report Required If the TSA core indicator at secondary (2S1) or postsecondary (1P1) does not meet the negotiated target, but it is at or above the 90% level Improvement Plan Required If a District is testing, but secondary TSA data are not reported The secondary or postsecondary core indicator is below 90% of the negotiated target OR

38 TSA and PSEO/Dual Credit/ Concurrent Enrollment School Districts are responsible for ensuring that data for secondary students assessed at postsecondary through PSEO or concurrent enrollment are included in the secondary data submission. If the secondary TSA results are also part of the data collected system-wide for postsecondary concentrators, the data will be included in consortia results for both 2S1 and 1P1.
