NYS PATHWAYS TO TECHNOLOGY PROGRAMS ARE NOW LOOKING FOR WBL COORDINATORS TO MOVE THEIR STUDENTS INTO THE WORKPLACE
Beginning in 2013 thirty-six Pathways to Technology Programs were created to assist students in declaring a career focus at the beginning of ninth grade. From that day on, the students in the chosen schools tackled both high school courses and credit bearing courses from the local community college. The oldest PTECH student is now in the 11th grade and getting ready to explore and train in the chosen PTECH pathway. In order for the students to train in hazardous occupations and/or receive NYS credit for work experience, they need to be supervised by a NYS WBL Certified Coordinator.
If you work in a school with a PTECH program, you may be called upon to begin working with these students. Or, a district may be looking to add a new coordinator to the program. To learn more about PTECH, visit our Member Resources section for training tools, brochures and websites. http://www.highered.nysed.gov/kiap/scholarships/PTech.htm,

In her first visit to a P-TECH school since taking office in July, the Commissioner spoke to students and educators at Hamilton Fulton Montgomery BOCES, one of 26 P-TECH programs in New York.
