Golden State Pathways Program

The purpose of the Golden State Pathways Program (GSPP) is to provide local educational agencies (LEAs) with the resources to promote pathways in high-wage, high-skill, high-growth areas, allowing students to advance seamlessly from high school to college and career and provide the workforce needed for economic growth. Some of these high-growth areas include technology, health care, education, and climate-related fields.

As the regional technical assistance provider for the Southern Coast Region (San Diego, Imperial and Orange counties), SDCOE aims to assist potential applicants and grant recipients seeking to establish or expand their pathway programs.  Program related announcements, resources and services will be posted here to ensure you have first hand access as needed once the Request for Applications is announced by the California Department of Education.
