9 Junior Achievement &Common Core JA programs provide students with a bridge from school to work readiness & entrepreneurship, reinforcing the CCS for college and career readiness. Our corporate & community volunteers deliver JA program content using informative text, developing literacy skills as early as
elementary school. All JA programs utilize one-on-one, small group and whole-class discussions, supporting CCS for speaking and learning. JA programs embed fundamental math skills to build students understanding of economics, finance and budgeting. 10 Junior Achievement & STEM
JA has incorporated STEM career related concepts into several of our existing programs and are committed to incorporating relevant STEM elements into new programs we develop, including: JA Our Nation- (5th grade) JA Its My Future (MS) JA Economics for Success (MS) JA Career Success- (HS) Additionally, we continue to engage volunteers who are currently working in STEM fields to facilitate JA programs and provide realworld experiences. 11 JA Programs JAs High School Programs are economic and business curricula for students in grades 9 12.

the same (22 credits) 4 + 1 assessment model Students must pass one Regents exam in English, Math, Science, Social Studies & one Alternate Assessment All Pathways assessments must be approved by NYSED and the Board of Regents Assessment Options for the Five Identified Pathways CTE Students will take an approved Technical Assessment STEM Students will take one additional Math or Science Regents exam
Humanities Students will take a second Social Studies exam Bilingual Students will take an approved Language assessment Art Students will take an approved Art assessment What the CTE Pathway is NOT A call for every student to be a CTE student An attempt to limit student choice and develop tracks A call for a separate CTE pathway independent of other equally viable educational experiences and pathways (Brindisi Bill) Abandoning the Common Core State Learning

The CTE TACs scope of work, developed in cooperation with NYSED, includes identifying and
disseminating best practices in CTE and fostering an increase in the number of approved programs. As a result of that charge, the CTE TAC has engaged in reviews of selected approved programs in the Big Five School Districts, Local Education Agencies and Boards of Cooperative Educational Services.

Goal: By 2015, NYS will offer all students an established set of assessment pathways that are grounded in the Common Core Learning Standards, are similarly rigorous, allow for student choice and have demonstrated, effective outcomes for students. Successful Practices Network www.nyctecenter.org Domains of College and Career Readiness Defines the academic knowledge and skills students need to be
successful in college and careers. Specifies the noncognitive, socio-emotional knowledge and skills that help students successfully transition from high school to college or careers. Successful Practices Network Describes the careerspecific opportunities for students to gain the knowledge, skills, and
competencies they need to pursue and succeed in their chosen career. 45 45 www.nyctecenter.org Data Summary Graduation Rates are Increasing Aspirational performance Increasing however, only 38% of students are college and career ready High Dropout Numbers

Why The Fuss With CTE and Pathways About 50 percent of all STEM jobs are open to workers with less than a bachelor's degree. (Rothwell, The Hidden STEM Economy, 2013) Students attending CTE high schools have demonstrated higher rates of on-time graduation and credit accumulation and a greater likelihood of successfully finishing a college preparatory mathematics sequence. (Neild et al., The Academic Impacts of Career and Technical Schools: A Case Study of a Large Urban School District, 2013) Successful Practices Network www.nyctecenter.org
Eighty percent of students taking a college preparatory academic curriculum with rigorous CTE met college and career readiness goals, compared to only 63 percent of students taking the same academic core who did not experience rigorous CTE. (Southern Regional Education Board, High Schools That Work 2012 Assessment) The average high school graduation rate in 2008 for students concentrating in CTE programs was 90 percent, compared to the average nationwide graduation rate of 75 percent. (U.S. Department of Education 20072008 data, National Association of State Directors of Career Technical Education Consortium analysis)
Successful Practices Network www.nyctecenter.org Health care occupations, many of which require an associate degree or less, make up 12 of the 20 fastest growing occupations. STEM occupations such as environmental engineering technicians require an associate degree and will experience faster than average job growth. Middle-skill jobs, jobs that require education and training beyond high school but less than a bachelors degree, are a significant part of the economy. Of the 55 million job openings created by 2020, 30 percent will require some college or a
two-year associate degree. Successful Practices Network www.nyctecenter.org The primary aim of education is not to enable students to do well in school, but to help them do well in the lives they lead outside of school. Successful Practices Network

Problem: Mass mailing and marketing strategies are not effective in reaching students Guidance counselors and teachers are often not fully aware of the research program Impact: Students learn of the program after the application deadline date Students who are a good fit and would benefit from the program do not apply Myths about the program are spread due to lack of accurate program information Goals: Ensure that students interested and talented in science apply to the summer research program Ensure a broader reach to candidates across schools in the Western New York Region Solutions: Develop stronger connections between Roswell Park Cancer Institute Summer Program leadership and high school teachers and guidance counselors
Provide channels for RPCI Summer Program leadership to come into the classroom to speak directly with students about the program and application process
