Eastside Union High School District (ESUHSD) embarked on an ambitious plan in 2014 to create a system of College and Career Pathways at each of its high schools.. The district has established links with both its community college partners so students can earn post-secondary credits, and with its middle school feeder schools to better prepare incoming students for a pathway experience. Today, it has 21 thematic pathways.

ConnectED has partnered with ESUHSD to help onboard new pathway teams, train a cohort of internal coaches to support pathway implementation, and create a video documenting the district’s systemic approach to work-based learning.
