Career Connected Learning

The Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), Career and Technical Education (CTE) and the Association of Educational Service Districts (AESD) form the Washington Career Connected Learning network. This network's goal is to provide coherent and aligned technical assistance and professional learning. Our work is data-informed and strategically focused on building equitable student access, increasing system capacity, and ensuring positive outcomes for all students.

Our goal is to support Career Connect WA and promote successful development and expansion of CTE graduation pathways for school districts on the Olympic Peninsula.

Choosing a career is a journey that begins in pre-K.  Students start this journey with career awareness then move towards career exploration and preparation.  While in high school students are challenged to decide what they wish to do "after high school."  While there are many options after graduation, such as attend college or trade school, join the military, or enter the workforce directly, students depend on their families, teachers and counselors to help guide them in this decision making.

Career Connect Washington believes that every Washington student deserves meaningful work and a prosperous life, and that there are many pathways open to them. Career Connect WA programs allow students to learn while they earn in one of our state's high demand, high-wage careers.
