Pre-apprenticeship and Work Based Learning Roll-Out
This presentation will be an overview of a program that was put together with myself, Linda O'Connor from ODE and Wendell Myers from the Office of Tech Prep.

We brought together the following individuals to assist the southwest region of Ohio (the regions that I serve as a CTPD) with information in regards to pre-apprenticeship and work based learning programs. We wanted to not only provide the information but develop a workshop where we envisioned providing all of the information that our districts needed to develop their own set of pre-apprenticeship standards, including the submission of paperwork to the Ohio State Apprenticeship Council. We provided examples of documentation as well as the digital templates and a walk through all processes of development and implementation of these programs. Experts in apprenticeship programming provided information in regards to resources required and necessary for building and sustaining work based learning programs in schools.

Another interesting piece to our workshop was the integration of business partners. We brought in a group of business and industry partners that included: manufacturing, construction, and the medical field. We encouraged interaction between our educators and our business leaders. We provided opportunities for discussion as well as problem solving.

Our roll-out that day also included two identified areas of barriers for students who desire to be in work based learning programs. These two barriers were identified as transportation and passing drug tests. We found exemplar models within our Ohio schools and we shared these models with all and included next steps. The Drugs Free Clubs of America provided information for implementation and sustainability for our visiting school districts that day. The Ohio Department of Transportation also provided information in regards to how schools can make drivers’ education more accessible and affordable to the students that they serve.

Our return evaluations provided positive feedback as we have been asked by a variety of State and local groups if we would duplicate this workshop again for their regions.

The purpose of this workshop was not only to provide information but to also provide a platform for networking and for developing action steps for implementation as well as resources necessary for sustainability.

The Power of Micromessages in Marketing, Recruitment and Success in CTE: Ohio’s Career Guidebooks for Manufacturing and Construction
Ohio’s Construction and Manufacturing Industries are in high demand, they pay well, and they require a variety of educational pathways. Many of these pathways begin as early as middle school, and they require postsecondary education ranging from employer-based training, to certificates, to pre-apprenticeships, to associate and bachelor’s degrees. Through funding from Ohio Department of Education’s Office of Career-Technical Education, the National Alliance for Partnerships in Equity (NAPE) designed a series of guidebooks for students and their families, and the educators who serve them, in order to broaden their understanding of these pathways and the opportunities they provide. Our goal is to broaden participation in these exciting, rewarding, and well-paying careers, especially for those historically under-represented by gender/sex, race and ethnicity, and (dis)ability status. We hope you will find these tools to be useful as you and your students explore these exciting career pathways. The success of these guidebooks was recently highlighted in a feature article in the February 2018 issues of ACTE Techniques.

What’s Your E? TCTC’s Approach to Career Advising and College and Career Readiness for All Students
TCTC’s ‘What’s Your E?’ campaign is a schoolwide approach to college and/or career readiness that helps all students be successful on their pathway towards Enrollment, Enlistment or Employment after graduation.  This presentation will highlight the initiatives implemented at TCTC at both the whole school and classroom level to support and reinforce our 3E campaign. These initiatives include E panels, E 'help' sessions, whole school career advising activities, individual and classroom lessons/projects, Signing Day, How to Adult, etc. We will also demonstrate the importance of branding to promote staff and student buy in.  Finally, we will share the impact this campaign has had on our former and current students and our school culture.

With students from twenty home schools in Trumbull County, the simplicity and visibility of our 3E campaign unites students in the shared goal of becoming successful adults.  This unity extends to the staff, as the campaign inspires teachers to create innovative classroom projects and directly connect content with students’ future plans.  Our 3E initiative has better equipped students with the support they need for their next steps after graduation, and we notice that our students are committed to their goals sooner, taking an active approach to their E.  Preliminary evidence indicates that students are having better post-placement outcomes, as more students are actively pursuing education or the military, or more students are employed in jobs related to their TCTC program.

Assessing the Readiness of a Program for Review using the Ohio’s Quality Program Standards for Career-Technical Education Programs
Ohio Quality Program Standards for Career-Technical Education Programs is a versatile set of guidelines that should be used for annual reviews and continuous program improvement by CTE program administrators, advisory committees, and instructors. It is essential to ensure the collection of accurate and appropriate data to provide evidence of the level to which the Standards are addressed prior to application of the Standards to programming. However, the Standards themselves do not provide direction for this initial and vital step. This session will present the rationale behind and development of a scoring rubric that can help assess the readiness of a program for review with regards to the provision of adequate data and evidence. An extended example using three of the ten standards will illustrate how the Standards are broken down in terms of the evidence that needs to be collected for each quality indicator and how the scoring rubric is applied. This methodology provides a relatively simple process that improves accuracy and saves time.

Preparing the District and Your Community for a Ballot Issue
Passage of a ballot issue depends upon whether a school system trusts and believes that the school system is managing their tax dollars wisely. After all, why would a voter approve additional tax dollars for the district if they do not have confidence in you? That’s why having an ongoing conversation with the community about the district’s fiscal health and needs is critical. We’ll help you through that and explain how to do it well and so that it reflects your community.
