Workshop Opportunity: Early and Middle College Programs, Dec. 9th

Minnesota State and the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) will be hosting a workshop on Early/Middle College Programs on Friday, December 9, 2016.  This event brings together Minnesota State campuses, State Approved Alternative Programs (SAAP), and community partners currently involved in an Early or Middle College Program along with those interested in developing one.  Attendees are encouraged to attend as a team of secondary and postsecondary members including administrators, counselors/advisors, work-based learning coordinators and teachers who work with and in State-Approved Alternative Programs. Community and workforce partners are also encouraged to attend.

This event features an innovative professional development session with Deon Clark and Josh Olatunde from TCI Solutions that guides participants through a new approach to developing work-based learning and career pathway opportunities with employers. TCI Solutions will also share techniques they use in their high school Legacy Program to help seemingly hard-to-serve students become career and college ready.
