SDE to Hold Workshops to Gather Input
On Options for High School Reform
The workshops -- “A Public Workshop to Review High School Reform Efforts and Structuring of Career Pathways in Schools” -- will follow the following schedule:
Roswell Room 124
The morning session will provide an overview and training on career pathways while the afternoon session will be a public forum on high school reform. Sandi Mittlesteadt, executive director of the National Career Academy Coalition, will facilitate the morning session, assisting participants with the structuring of career pathways in schools.
The New Mexico State Board of Education (SBE) voted in November 2002 to include $3 million in its legislative package for pilot programs in 2003 of innovative high school curricula and to hold a minimum of four workshops throughout the state on proposed amendments to the Public School Code to change the state’s graduation requirements and require students to prepare a program of study designed around a career pathway.
