IPS Webpage Individual Plans of Study What is an IPS? • Product - Multi-year educational plan based on career interests • Process – Providing students access to career development It’s NOT just a graduation plan What are the obstacles in moving students toward quadrant D, high rigor and high application? 1. Living in the Past – Always done that way 2. Scheduling 3. Licensure 4. Carnegie Units 5. Finances 6. Different levels of High Rigor per student 7. Lack of support to provide PD to teachers for the changes 8. Limited opportunities for work-based learning in community What do we need to start doing to move students into Quadrant D? 1. Cause students to think critically 2. Integration/Team Teaching 3. Differentiated Teaching Strategies 4. Increased Relevance What do we need to stop doing to move students into Quadrant D? 1. Less Standards – Higher/Fewer/Clearer (Common Career Technical Core) 2.

Creating meaningful improvement plans 2. Engaging advisory committee members Pathway Assessment Rubric • Voluntary • Will not be shared with KSDE • BEST PRACTICE – Teacher(s) of a Pathway complete the assessment along with Advisory Committee • Contains four components of a quality Pathway (all four are part of a draft of the CTE Accreditation Model) • Partnerships • Physical Environment • Instructional Practices • Professional Development Component Indicator IV. Instructional Strategies A. Instruction is balanced between classroom & laboratory instruction, experiential learning, and leadership & personal development Missing or non-existent. Needs Improvement—One component of the classroom and laboratory instruction, experiential learning, and leadership and personal development dominate the curriculum, while others are minimally addressed or ignored. Improving—While one component of the curriculum is clearly Stages dominating the instruction, there is a plan for bringing the deficient area(s) into balance with input from the advisory committee and state staff. Promising-Evidence exists that an attempt is made to balance the curriculum across all components utilizing input from the local advisory committee. Exemplary—A well-planned balance exists among all curriculum components. The balance is documented and is a result of collaboration with all stakeholders and state requirements. “Score” a Pathway • Think of one Pathway • Assess the Pathway in only ONE component • Under each indicator, check boxes next to the stage that best fits the current status of the Pathway Reflection Questions Which indicators did you score at the struggling or missing (non-existent) stage? (These are considered critical areas your pathway improvement plan should address.) 3 yr. Pathway Improvement Plan Template • Use the results from the Pathway assessment rubric to develop SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, timely) goals for each component • Very similar to the new template of the Pathway Improvement Plan in the Pathway application • If you feel the Pathway assessment rubric would be a valuable tool, please use it during your fall Advisory Committee Meeting • More time and training will take place during the Fall CTE Drive-In Workshops HAVE A FANTASTIC START TO THE SCHOOL YEAR!
