Report on K14 Technical Assistance Provider - Manager

K14 Technical Assistance Provider - Manager

The K14 Technical Assistant Provider (TAP) provides regional leadership in the development, administration, and organization of Pathway Improvement initiatives for Career Technical Education Incentive Grants (CTEIG) for K12 and intersegmental partnerships in the K12 Strong Workforce Program (K12 SWP). The TAP develops key relationships between CTEIG and K12 SWP partners and stakeholders, which include leaders and representatives from the regionâs local education agencies (LEAs), community colleges and community college districts, professional organizations, and local business community. The TAP will initiate and facilitate early engagement and collaboration of college faculty and secondary teachers and counselors for an effective and efficient launch of pathway improvement initiatives within the region. Through the duration of the grant, the TAP provides its regionâs K12 Pathway Coordinators with technical assistance and professional development support.

Technical Assistance

Collaborate with K12 SWP partners to develop a regional technical assistance plan, utilizing needs assessment and diagnostic tools focused on career education and early college credit, aligned with guided pathways and regional economic priorities. The regional technical assistance plan will integrate K12 pathway improvement initiatives and work activities for K12 Pathway Coordinators and be situated within the larger regional plan for each Regional Consortia.
Assist LEAs with grant applications, build LEA knowledge base of their regional consortiumâs plan, and align LEA career technical education program objectives with regional consortiumâs plan.
Create shared resources, including templates, toolkits, and guides for K12 Pathway Coordinators to disseminate to partners of pathway improvement initiatives.
Identify and analyze structural barriers in implementing pathways from the field, and pilot regional and state level solutions.

Data Projects

The TAP has significant involvement with supporting consortia in the understanding of metrics associated with CTEIG and K12 SWP, their relationship to existing accountability reporting requirements and the larger labor market, and implications for continuous improvement. For K12 outcomes, the metrics will be based on information that LEAs are already collecting for Perkins and Local Control and Accountability Plans (LCAP) including high school career technical education enrollment, dual enrollment, graduation, and student characteristics. For outcomes once students are enrolled in community college, the metrics will be based on collegeâs Management Information System submissions and data matches with other state agencies. Until an MOU can be put in place between CDE and CCCCO for information sharing on K12 data points, student-level information will be reported through CAL-PASS Plus. No data reporting is required from community colleges, as metrics can be constructed from CCCCO data.
