CA Dept of Education: Linked Learning Pilot Project

SACRAMENTO—As many as 20 school districts across California will have opportunities to get state assistance in launching new programs demonstrated to help students graduate from high school prepared to succeed in careers and college, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson announced today.

“Linked Learning” programs tie together real-world professions with demanding academics through challenging coursework, technical skills and knowledge, work-based learning, and pertinent support mechanisms for kids. Research shows that students in these programs are not only demonstrably more likely to graduate from high school than their statewide counterparts, but they are graduating with the skills and knowledge that California employers say they need.
