Since 2017, ConnectED has been supporting Boston Public Schools as they begin to implement College and Career Pathways. The first year focused on two high schools, Excel and Brighton, that were designated Level 4 by the state and were charged with undertaking a significant transformation. BPS is using College and Career Pathways as its primary reform strategy in those schools, injecting more relevancy and real world application into the curriculum and providing more engagement for students. The results so far are promising, with BPS adding three more schools for the 2018-19 school year.
ConnectED has provided support by working with two high schools to implement the four components of Linked Learning and providing leadership consultation to BPS as they work to further expand their college, career and life readiness efforts.
