FAIRFIELD — A three-year, $15 million state grant will help create career pathway programs connecting K-12 schools, colleges and businesses in Solano, Napa, Sonoma, Marin, Mendocino and Lake counties.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to ensure that young people are well prepared for college and careers in high-demand and high-wage fields,” said Jay Speck, Solano County superintendent of schools, in a press release. “The opportunity to align with workforce needs is critical for student success and economic growth.”

Business and education representatives from all six counties came together to form the North California Career Pathway Alliance and develop the grant proposal. The alliance includes 37 high schools, six county offices of education, five community colleges, five county workforce investment boards and employers throughout the region.

High school pathways will provide students with sequenced courses aligned with both the Career Technical Education and Common Core standards for California schools. Courses will be taught by teams consisting of at least one CTE teacher and one core academic teacher. Teacher teams will be supported by “pathway coaches” who have expertise in curriculum integration, the press release said.

The proposed 67 high school pathways will be coordinated with 38 community college pathways, allowing students to make a smooth transition, it said.

“In Solano County, business and education have come together over the years to build partnerships that have and continue to benefit students,” Solano County Associate Superintendent of Schools Janet Harden said in the release. “With this grant, we look forward to strengthening those partnerships and building additional ones both locally and regionally. Education and the workforce must work together.”
