In May of 2010, the California Department of Education (CDE) released the report, "Multiple Pathways to Student Success: Envisioning the New California High School". This report is a first-in-the-nation publication: a result of the enactment of Assembly Bill 2648 - exploring the feasibility of expanding the multiple pathways approach statewide. The multiple pathways/linked learning approach incorporates four components: an integrated, multi-year high school program with an academic core; a career technical core; a work-based learning component; and student support services. Join three of the CDE’s High School Transformation Unit’s consultants in a discussion on the feasibility of statewide expansion of this extremely promising approach in preparing California’s students for life beyond high school in both postsecondary learning experiences and future careers.
