A. Describe the Career Technical Education Plan, including the rationale for this
project application, including the rationale for the requested CTE modification,
reconfiguration, new construction and or equipment. Identify the industry sector
being addressed and describe the high demand labor market for qualified
technical employees in this field in the region). (20 points)

Venice High School has the need and the plan to utilize Prop 1D funds to renovate its
Vehicle Maintenance, Service, and Repair program of the Transportation Industry
Sector. The focus of the program is to introduce and train students for entry level
positions as automotive technicians, and to prepare them for future training they will
need to compete and succeed in the automotive repair and service field.

It is projected that by 2014, there will be an 11% job growth in the Automotive Service
Technician and Mechanic sector (LA Occupational Projection 2004). The projected
average wages in this industry sector range from $16-$30 per hour.

In an article titled “Workers Needed: Top 10 positions For Which Employers Seek
Workers” in MarketWatch, March 2007 by Andrea Coombes mechanics, including
automotive service technicians, diesel service technicians small engine mechanics,
aircraft and avionics equipment mechanics and industrial repair are listed as third on the
list top ten positions for which employers are struggling to keep up with the pace of

The transportation sector is one of the 10 industry’s projected to have the largest wage
and salary increases between 2004-2014 according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics
report on new employment outlook in 2005.

The automotive industry is one of the largest industries in the United States. It creates
6.6 million direct and spin-off jobs. For every worker directly employed by an automaker,
nearly seven spin-off jobs are created. Employment of automotive service technicians
and mechanics is expected to increase about as fast as the average (10 to 20%)
through the year 2012. Formal automotive technician training is the best preparation for
automotive service jobs. In automotive services, employment growth will continue to be
concentrated in motor vehicle dealerships and independent service repair shops.
Opportunities should be good for automotive service technicians with good diagnostic
and problem solving skills and knowledge of electronics and mathematics.

“In Southern California in particular, the career opportunities are almost limitless. There
is a huge shortage of technical people with technical skills and they are very, very much
in demand. Coupled with a degree, that person is very valuable. It’s good money and
job security is very good. Auto tech can’t be outsourced. “said auto professor Kevin
Taylor of Norwalk’s Cerritos College, one of very few school’s offering automotive

C. Describe how the school is committed to ensuring that all students are given
the opportunity to participate in CTE Programs, activities and experiences. (10

The administration, counseling staff and instructors Venice High School (VHS) will
ensure that every student will participate in a rigorous quality curriculum that is culturally
relevant and linguistically responsive to their unique learning needs, thereby eliminating
the achievement gap between groups of students by focusing on each student as an
individual. District-wide, we have instituted the implementation of the Individual
Graduation Plan, in which each student plans his/her high school program for
completing their graduation requirements and career pathway plan. VHS provides high
quality programs, resources and services to prepare all students for career and
academic success postsecondary education and adult roles and responsibilities.

This is achieved by providing all students with full access to learning opportunities with
differentiated instruction in high quality career technical education offerings. The student
population includes socio-economically disadvantaged students, English learners,
standard English learners, students with disabilities, and gifted and talented students.
Currently, in addition to the Vehicle Maintenance, Service and Repair pathway our
school offers students courses in the following career pathways: Cabinetmaking and
Wood Products, Graphic Arts Technology, Therapeutic Services via our Sports
Medicine Program, Ornamental Horticulture, and Media and Design Arts.

D. Describe how the CTE program includes the following: Industry-validated

We have just applied and been accepted to become a new on-campus business as part
of Project ECHO, a local non-profit organization seeking to prepare high school
students for careers in business, both as entrepreneurs and as skilled workers, by
promoting the development of entrepreneurial business skills. Project ECHO
encourages hands-on, experiential learning through the support of on-campus
businesses and integrating modules on new business creation into career technology

This is exactly what we needed to make our program more real for our students. Instead
of just providing a passive service to the community and school, students will now
receive a hands-on experience by managing and operating an on-campus business by
creating a business plan with the help of a UCLA Anderson mentor for the Project
ECHO Business Plan Competition.
Project ECHO will provide start-up funds, up to $5,000 in loan funds, annual donations
of $1,500 for student scholarships or awards banquet, teacher support in starting and
managing an on-campus business (e.g. help design a small business management
curriculum for students managing the business), bring in community business leaders
(i.e.: guest speakers from the industry), provide MBA student mentors from UCLA
Anderson to help with projects, participate on a Business Advisory Board to help
support the on-campus business, and assist with public relations and providing
advocacy within the school and the district. We will embark on our adventure of Project
ECHO January 2008.

The Business Plan Curriculum is aligned with the Foundation Standards from the
Entrepreneurial Career Pathway in the Marketing, Sales and Service Sector. This will
enhance the student’s experience in providing a service to the community and school by
earning money for the program.

A. Identify the total annual number of pupils expected to attend this CTE program
that will be supported with these funds and describe the method used to project
the student enrollments for each of the first five years. (15 points)

Venice High School is located in the western section of Los Angeles County and is a
traditional track comprehensive high school. It draws students from diverse socio-
economic and racial backgrounds. Venice students come from seven zip codes,
including150 students through the Capacity Adjustment Program. Venice is committed
to providing students with the skills they need to graduate from high school and be
successful at the college level.

Student enrollment in the 2007-2008 school year for grades 9-12 is 2890 students
representing the following groups:
72.6% Latino or Hispanic
11.4% African American
11.1 % White
3% Asian
1.2% Filipino
28% are designated English Language Learners
54% are designated as Title 1
10% of students receive special education services

The automotive program serves 400 students per year in six periods a day, in addition
to the evening class. An additional 30 students are served during summer session.
These 30 students can be students who are programmed in the normal school year, or
students interested in the Transportation Industry Sector, but who cannot take the
program as part of their regular academic plan due to remediation requirements, athletic
program participation or other factors.

We are in the preliminary stages of discussion of converting to the 4x4 class schedule
to accommodate the District initiative that all classes meet A-G requirements. The
switch to the new schedule would significantly help enrollment in all CTE pathways.

B. Describe the procedures in place that will ensure that the projected student
enrollment will be met. Include the specific role of the guidance and counseling
component of the school in the recruitment and enrollment process. (10 points)

VHS students and incoming 9th graders meet with their counselors each semester to
insure they meet their graduation requirements and career choices. There is also a
Career Technical Education Advisor, a College Advisor, Career/Work Experience
Advisor whose offices are available for students and their parents. A major recruiting
tool for students is the variety of career technical education programs available at VHS.

In addition to the procedures outlined above, a personalized learning plan
(Individualized Graduation Plan) and parent input will help students in their decision-
making (pursuant to AB1810). Each student and parent is required to meet with their
counselor in the 10th grade to review their academic progress and fulfillment of
graduation requirements. A student’s career pathway graduation requirement will be
fulfilled by participation in the Vehicle Maintenance & Repair program.

The Regional Occupational Program will also provide students with access to
information promoting the automotive program. The Career Advisor (funded by ROP)
will provide all students with access to Career Cruising which is an online, internet
career assessment tool, will provide students with career assessments and career
profiles as well as college information such as graduation rates, freshmen drop out
rates, and other higher education data. It also provides a link to financial aid information,
and allows the students to create an electronic portfolio in which they build their resume.

VHS also arranges for the ASVAB to be given at school. Once the results come in a
career awareness workshop is given to provide the students an explanation of their
results and information about how to pursue these interests. All VHS students are
required to take 1 year of technical arts for their graduation requirements. The current
instructor has been teaching at VHS since 1999 and his classes have always been full.
He also teaches adult school and summer school to help meet the demand for this

A List the feeder schools, middle schools, high schools, regional occupational centers
and programs (ROCPs), students, parents, counselors, community members, business
& industry partners related to the sector being addressed, community colleges, and
other key stakeholders who participated in the development, articulation, review and
approval of the CTE plan which was described in Element 1. Describe the geographic
proximity of other similar programs to ensure that the project complements CTE
offerings in the area. Include a roster with participants names and affiliations.(15 points)

The three area feeder middles schools are Palms, Mark Twain and Marina Del Rey.
None of them offer an automotive program. VHS counselors visit these schools and
program their students into the Vehicle Maintenance & Repair program. Discussions
have been started to invite middle school students to visit the school prior to their
enrollment to see the various CTE programs we have to offer in preparation of their
selection of classes. Pursuant to AB2448, which requires coordination between middle
schools through community colleges for a sequence of courses, we have begun the
dialogue with our feeders and adult schools.

Upon graduation, students will have ready access to multiple avenues for continued
pursuit of the field at schools such as Cerritos College, Los Angeles Trade Technical,
Citrus College, Santa Ana College, Abraham Freedman Occupational Center, East Los
Angeles Occupational Center, UTI, Wyotech, and many other colleges, universities,
technical schools, and occupational centers.

Employment opportunities and scholarships are available through Cerritos College,
Greater Los Angeles New Car Dealers Association, BMW of North America, Snap-On
Tools, and many other trade organizations.

etc, a(2) the number of students expected to enter employment in a related
industry, apprenticeship program or military, (3) the number of students expected
to successfully transition into postsecondary institutions for more advanced
study in the applicable industry or other areas of study, and (4) the process the
school will use to gather analyze, and disseminate the data from 1-3 above to the
school board, parents, community members, business and industry partners, and
other key stakeholders. (20 points)

The Vehicle Maintenance & Repair program will serve an approximate 400 students per
school year, with an additional 30 students will be served during summer session.
Student enrollment will be based on student interest in the program.(1) There is
currently no industry-based certificate students can qualify for in this pathway, however
they do receive adequate training to pursue entry level positions in a variety of career
pathways, (2) At least half of the students are expected to enter employment in a
related industry, apprenticeship program or military, (3) All students are expected to
successfully transition to postsecondary institutions for more advanced study, (4)
Completer and employment information will be collected through face-to-face interviews
with students, parents, counselors and various staff members, as well as through post
graduation follow-us usually by phone. Data is collected in accordance to Perkins IV
requirements, for example CDE 101-E1 and E2 reports.
Student outcomes will be monitored through CAHSEE and STAR test results,
enrollment in postsecondary education institutions as well as employment status upon
completion of the program. We will conduct follow up interviews via phone and/or e-
mail, conduct exit surveys prior to their graduation to survey their post graduation plans.

High school students in our neighborhood have no similar Vehicle Maintenance and
Repair programs at their disposal. The program at the closest high school, University
High School, focused primarily on Mobile Electronics and was closed down in June
2006. Furthermore, we are one of only three schools in LAUSD participating in Project
Echo, and the other schools are 8.4 to 16.6 miles away.

We also participated in the 7th Annual Auto Tech Competition sponsored by the Greater
Los Angeles New Dealership Association last year and came in 5th place out of 11, and
were one of five high schools from LAUSD to participate, none of which were remotely
close to us geographically.

 Project Summary
 Summarize the scope of this project and its CTE educational goals and outcomes.
 Upgrade all electrical systems, remove and replace the three in-ground lifts, install Dynamometer, which will require
 excavation, upgrade exhaust ventilation system, paint floors, purchase classroom chairs and tables, anti-fatigue
 flooring mats, Flow Water jet, 3M Digital Wall Display Plus Series, Xiom Powder Coating System to provide a safer learning
 environment and more professional training.

 Program and Space Functionality
 Explain the program activities and how this CTE teaching station/equipment will support those activities. Include the number of
 students expected to occupy various spaces or work stations (i.e. lecture, lab, equipment areas) at one time.
 The existing electrical system does not have the capacity for the new and modern equipment. If we try to run the parts cleaner, a
 shop light, and a box fan, it will overload the circuit and shut everything down. Also, there are no 220v outlets in the shop yet many
 of the newer equipment require them. Drop extension cord and compressed air hose drops from the ceiling, In addition to, and
 outside the shop.

 The Dynamometer is a powerful diagnostic tool that is becoming more and more necessary. Most drivability problems happen
 when a vehicle is under way. With a dyno, the problem and driving conditions can be duplicated while the car is in the shop. It is a
 powerful teaching tool as well. Giving the graduating students more job skills and making them more competitive in the job market.
 This piece of equipment requires in ground installation with heavy electrical cables.

 The current lifts date back to 1970’s, and one of them cannot be used on most modern automobiles. They do not meet modern
 lift’s lifting capacity and environmental standards.

 Currently, there is no set exhaust ventilation system in the shop. Luckily, with the windows open and the doors open the shop gets
 enough airflow not to create a hazardous situation.

 Space and Equipment Requirements
 Identify square footage of areas used for equipment, lecture space and hands-on teaching spaces. Label equipment and all spaces (teaching
 station, storage, office, lab, lecture area, etc.) on schematic drawing. If possible, provide dimensions of the spaces.
See schematic plan

Functional Relationship to Site
Describe how the location of the new construction or modernized building will integrate with educational programs on the site. Please label
applicable buildings related to the industry sector on the school site plan.
These improvements will advance the program and make the room a safe place to learn.

Site Development Considerations
Provide, if any, additional site development needs associated with the career technical project.
