Seeking to address a long-standing equity challenge, the Madison Metropolitan School District (MMSD) began a planning process in 2013 to identify a strategy to reform their high schools. As a result of that process, the district embarked on a multi-year plan to ensure all of their students graduate college, career and community ready. The initiative, titled Personalized Pathways, has been rolling out over the last few years, beginning with Health Sciences pathways and now expanding to include Information Technology and Communications.

Since 2014, ConnectED has provided support around the following areas: designing, implementing and scaling a system of college and career pathways; developing a community-wide work-based learning system; providing district leadership consultation; and working with pathway teams to transform the learning and teaching in every classroom
