"Connect the educational experience to the world of work, to guarantee all students graduate prepared for college, career, and beyond." - San Diego County Board of Education Board Goal 1
Today's schools must prepare students to take on jobs that tackle our community's most pressing problems using advanced technology.
The challenge is clear: We must connect education to the world of work. Through project-based learning, work-based learning, career technical education, and other modern approaches of integrating career concepts into core curriculum, we can prepare students for careers in high-wage, high-growth industries.
