  • Statewide Career Pathways Project
    In September 2005, Senator Scott's Vocational Education legislation, SB 70, was chaptered into the Education Code section 88532. The bill focused on improving the linkages and career-technical pathways between high school and California community colleges. Most of the community college response to the legislation is occurring through programs coordinated directly from the System Office, and personnel there have begun to inform colleges about some of their plans. The Academic Senate for California Community Colleges is implementing one project called Statewide Career Pathways: Creating School to College Articulation.
    The Statewide Career Pathways project aims to provide an opportunity for high school and college faculty to meet, collaborate and develop articulation agreements. Agreements that result will vary by discipline and may include alignment of course skills, concepts and sequences, advanced placement possibilities and credit by examination options. While many schools and colleges participated in efforts to align curriculum and develop articulation agreements especially through Tech Prep programs, faculty have indicated several unmet needs which this project will address. This project aims to:
    • Develop a database of articulation agreements, accessible across
      the state.
    • Provide opportunities and support for faculty at schools and colleges to meet and develop agreements.
    • Create outreach strategies to encourage participation of students, parents and schools/college personnel.
To view some of the existing statewide high school to college articulation agreements, access:
