Here are a few highlights from the May 10 board meeting (the full agenda packet is available):

Board hears update on Career Technical Education 

Staff provided the board with an update on the growth of Career Technical Education (CTE) programs in the district. San Juan Unified’s goal has been to provide CTE programs that support students with many college and career opportunities. Currently, the district has 20 different pathways covering 11 sectors, resulting in 31 high school programs. Pathways include culinary, construction, fire technician, medical assistance, and more. Many pathways include industry-specific certifications that students can earn. Additionally, many pathways allow for dual enrollment at local community colleges.

Board hears information on A-G Completion Improvement Grant Plan 

Staff provided the board with information on the A-G Completion Improvement Grant Plan, which assures the allocated funding to the district and schools for supplement programs and services to students, parents/guardians and staff. The A-G Completion Improvement Grant is state funding provided to local educational agencies for additional supports to help increase the number of California high school pupils, particularly low-income, English learner, and foster youth students, who graduate from high school with A-G eligibility for admission into University of California and California State Universities.
