CTE Success Stories
Career Journeys is about helping students find their own path
Navigating the uncertainty of our formative years takes courage, curiosity, and outside support. A single conversation can spark a passion that leads to a lifetime of reward. Knowing where to start is often a challenge for students. The Career Journeys project seeks to help middle and high school students from across the state of Oregon–and beyond–to dream big. It’s all about exposing students to in-demand career pathways through “near-peer mentoring”.
This innovative approach to learning acknowledges that students often find it easier to relate to individuals close to their age. All our profilees are in the early stages of their careers. It is our hope that Oregon’s students can see themselves in the video profiles, lesson plans and website materials.
The stories we selected profile Oregonians who navigated the public school system. During their interviews, we touch on some of the challenges they faced when navigating their own career journeys. We cover the present, of course, but also, the past decisions that lead our profilees to where they are today. We invite students to discover their own pathway through this shared exploration of the next generation of Oregon’s leaders.

ODE CTE Tool Kit
The following Career and Technical Education (CTE) tool kit includes a set of resources to equip schools
and districts throughout Oregon with the messaging and tools you’ll need to communicate about your
school or district’s CTE program(s) to help attract future students as they forecast for next year’s classes.
The tool kit includes content for students, families, staff and local news media about CTE, including
information that can help dispel outdated ideas about what CTE is, through examples of current CTE
pathways. For an overview of CTE, please refer to the fact sheet in this tool kit.

Make the Future TM, Connecting Girls to Manufacturing
The NAPE Education Foundation’s Make the Future program, funded by Toyota USA Foundation, provides free methods and tools to help educators, counselors, administrators, and recruiters break down barriers. These barriers limit females and other historically underrepresented student groups from taking education paths that can prepare them for high-demand advanced manufacturing careers.

Requirements for High School Teachers to Offer Dual Credit
The new articulation process hopefully will streamline communication, cut down on the length of waiting time for internal and external partners and ultimately be a very clear and easy way for new articulation requests to be established all while ensuring alignment. Attached, please find the New ACC Articulation Request Process that will walk through the process of submitting a new articulation application. Any articulations still in process for this spring term will finish up in Dual Enroll before the end of the school year.
Here are a few new things you can expect with the new ACC articulation process:
There is now an Application instructors submit when requesting a new articulation. It can be found here: https://clackamas.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_1KUj0CuqZqt7fyC The application now includes a place to submit both credential and curriculum documents. Instructors who have articulated previously may use previous credentials (resume/transcripts) already on file with the ACC office, and may not need to upload additional credential documents for an application.
For every new and renewed articulation request, HS instructors will be asked to complete a curriculum map outlining how their HS course meets the student learning outcomes (in addition to a syllabus & sample assessments) for review. A blank curriculum map is attached.
New Articulation Deadlines will be established for each term new instructors wish to articulate. This is to help, in part, remove the ‘rushed’ articulation processes, and helps align with Oregon State standards.
Current ACC instructors who have articulations up for renewal will be required to complete curriculum maps as well for each college course renewed. Renewal notices and instructions will be going out in the coming weeks to appropriate instructors.
Additional information about the ACC articulation process can also be found at https://www.clackamas.edu/academics/academic-offerings/high-school-connections/instructors.
