California’s $250 million Career Pathways Trust competitive grants are an unprecedented opportunity to connect public education with our modern economy.

For applicants seeking fresh ideas and best practices, America’s Edge, in partnership with the Silicon Valley Leadership Group and Silicon Valley Education Foundation, is hosting a webinar to highlight IBM’s Pathways in Technology Early College High School (P-TECH) model.

An innovative public school spanning grades 9-14, P-TECH’s mission is to provide students with a personalized pathway toward mastery of the skills and knowledge that they will need to make the transition from education to industry. P-TECH students graduate with a no-cost associate’s degree, and are positioned to secure entry-level positions in the highly competitive Information Technology field(s)* and/or complete their studies in a four-year higher education institution.

IBM has generously offered to share its 50-page P-TECH guidebook, which features design principles, success metrics, sample bell schedules and more. Grace Suh, Education Manager in IBM's Corporate Citizenship and Corporate Affairs department, will discuss implementation best practices and answer questions from participants about how P-TECH is at work in New York City, New York State, and Chicago.
