Experiential Site Visits (ESV) provide a unique opportunity to see pathways in action. They are usually two-day events, co-hosted with a partner district, that allow interested educators to observe and learn how districts develop and sustain systems of pathways, as well as what those pathways look like at the site level.


Come Join Us!

ConnectED is pleased to announce two great opportunities to see College and Career Pathways in action. This is a chance to have a firsthand experience, ask questions of administrators, teachers, counselors, students, and business partners, and witness the power of high school transformation.

North Kansas City Experiential Site Visit – March 28 – 30, 2023

Hosted by North Kansas City School District and ConnectED in North Kansas City, Missouri on March 28-30, 2023.

North Kansas City School District launched their work four years ago with a readiness assessment and planning phase and launched four pathways for 9th graders in all four of their comprehensive high schools last year. Now in it’s second year of implementation serving 9th and 10th graders, North Kansas City Schools is ready to share what they have learned from visiting others like Porterville, Long Beach, and San Diego and how they have accelerated their work. Once again, this will be a great opportunity to see the work, ask questions, and determine how you might take what they have learned and apply it to your school or district. Both deep dive sessions and team time will also be provided. See the attachment for all the necessary information, the agenda, hotel, and registration information.  North Kansas City ESV Flyer
