Approval of Amendments to Original CTE Equipment Grant Request: Ron Rudzinski handed out a sheet summarizing the changes to the CTE supplies and equipment grant from February 1st, 2009 – March 31st, 2009. Motion to accept the changes made to the original CTE supplies and equipment grant from Paul Priesz, second from Jan Burns, approved. IV. CTE Course Approval Pete Getz updated the group on the career exploration courses that he and Doris Fossen have created. The career exploration courses will consist of two courses, one at the high school level and one at the junior high school level. Doris explained that the junior high level course would start with the basics of career exploration and then move to the next level during the high school course to go deeper into it with more hands on activities similar to the Faculty & Counselor in Industry programs. Doris and Pete see these courses getting started at Sierra Vista Junior High and Canyon High then moving it on to other schools throughout the district. Motion to accept the career exploration courses as career technical education courses from Mike Nugent, second from Jeff Rogers, approved. V. New Committee This item was skipped as Rita Thomas was unable to attend today’s meeting due to a parent meeting at her school site. VI. CTE Newsletter Distribution The group discussed many ways of distributing the first edition (Spring 2009) of the CTE Newsletter. It was decided that emailing everyone in the Hart District with the newsletter attached would be the first step so everyone could receive it before the end of the school year. Other suggestion for future distribution of the newsletter included: insert in The Signal Newspaper, email to local businesses through the SCV School and Business Alliance, email to parents, COC email to all college faculty, and hand out at back to school nights. VII. Faculty in Industry Site Reports A report was given from each CTE school site representative on how their “pitch” of the Faculty in Industry program went at their respective campuses. Everyone reported that the idea of the program was well received and there is a lot of interest from faculty members to participate. Completed applications have already been received at most of the school sites. VIII. SCV College and Career Day – Saturday October 3rd, 2009 Audrey Green briefed the group on SCV College and Career Day which is scheduled to take place on Saturday October 3rd, 2009 at College of the Canyons. This event is being expanded from SCV College Day to include career presentations. The group brainstormed and gave ideas on what should be included during CTE workshops for students and parents during SCV College and Career Day. A few of the ideas and goals included: parents leaving with options other than a 4-year university for their children, presenting information on general fields as a whole, and using college as an avenue; not as the ultimate goal. IX. Semester Wrap-Up and Goals Everyone felt that the CTEC had a very productive year. We have leveraged funds from three different grants, completed two career pathways, and have hosted a lot of great events such as Career Technical Education Awareness Day, Counselors in Industry, Faculty in Industry, College Making it Happen, and Discovering Careers. X. CTEC Meeting in August The group decided that the CTEC should meet in August to get a head start on our plans for 2009-2010 instead of waiting until September for our first meeting. The group decided to meet on August 25th, place to be determined. XI. Closing Discussion/Other Business None XII. Next Meeting August 25th, 2009. Location to be announced.
