                Career Based Intervention Goals

   Career Based Intervention (CBI) programs help students with
     barriers to career and academic success improve academic
 competencies, graduate from high school, develop employability
skills, implement a career plan, and participate in a career pathway
       in preparation for postsecondary education and careers.
   CBI programs provide combined educational and work-based
  learning opportunities for students in grades 7 through 12 who
demonstrate academic and/or social maturity difficulties in school.
     The number of years a student spends in a CBI program is
 determined locally by the program design and individual student
 needs. The following seven key principals are intended to guide
   CBI program design and delivery to best meet student needs.
Career Based Intervention

  education program designed for students:
• Ages 12 – 21 in grades 7 – 12
• Are identified as disadvantaged
• Academically, economically or both, and have barriers
  to achieving academic and career success.

The number of years a student spends in CBI is
  determined by the local program design and individual
  student needs.

The CBI programs are recommended to have a minimum
  of 15 students and a maximum of 25 students per
  class.

                        Academics




Career Based Intervention Related instruction must be based on
  the Core Integrated Technical and Academic Competencies
(ITACs) with academic intervention and work- based learning.
Academic credit classes must use established academic courses
                          of study.

  Intervention (CBI) uses the core ITACS which consists of:

  successful in further education, in a career, and in life.

       circumstances and issues that require monitoring to assure that they are included in
       the vision and mission of Career Based Intervention

       learning.
