1 Pittsfield Public Schools Career Technical Education Program Offerings: Your Pathway to College and Career Readiness Awaits

2 Dear Students, Parents and Guardians: Welcome to the exciting world of Career Technical Education! In today s economy it is vital that all students leave high school both college and career ready. The technical programs within Pittsfield Public Schools allow students to be prepared for both while offering a range of career opportunities that are both exciting and rewarding. Students have the opportunity to explore the various technical programs during their 9th grade year at each high school. Their tenth grade year marks the beginning of a three year technical certificate that will prepare students for the work place while also providing the necessary academic preparation for both two and four year college degree programs. These programs represent state of the art technology, which reflect recommendations from our very active Technical Program Advisory Committees. Cooperative work experience is available for students in all programs and represents the direct connection to businesses and industries, as well as future job opportunities. Students may elect to go out on Coop half way through their Junior Year or Senior Year. In order to participate in the Coop experience, students must have a C in all of their academic classes as well as a B in their shop. They must have good attendance and be a good citizen of the school community. Coop is a privilege for the students that must be earned. Coop is optional if a student elects not to go out on Coop they can stay in their shop. Students interested in the technical education programs will be required to take Career Exploratory as a prerequisite to gain entrance into a Career Vocational Technical program. If you have any questions or would like to visit any of the programs that you see please do not hesitate to contact the Career Technical Education office at Sincerely, Frank Cote Assistant Superintendent of Career Technical Education

4 Career Technical Education Programs Admissions Policy Q &A In March of 2008 the School Committee approved an Admissions Policy for the Career Technical Programs at both of our high schools. This letter is to answer some of your basic questions about this policy. These are as follows: Q: Why is this policy necessary? A: In Pittsfield our Career Technical Programs are highly competitive and an admissions process is necessary as we have a limited number of slots available for each of our programs. Each year we have more applicants than slots, therefore all students in grades 9-12 that seek to be enrolled in a Career Technical Program will be evaluated using the selection criteria in the Admissions Policy. Q: Who can apply for the Career Technical Programs? A: The Pittsfield Pubic Schools admits students and makes available to them its advantages, privileges and courses of study without regard to race, color, sex, religion, national origin, sexual orientation or disability. That being said, any 8 th grade student from the City or Pittsfield or the Town of Richmond who expects to be promoted to the 9 th grade by their current school, is eligible to apply for fall admission to Pittsfield s Career Technical Programs. Transfer students from other career technical programs may also apply. Grade 8 non-resident students will be considered for any remaining openings. Q: What criteria will be used to evaluate my student? A: Criteria will include: 1. The average of Grade 7 and the 1 st and 2 nd quarter grades from Grade 8 2. Number of unexcused absences from Grade 7 and 1 st and 2 nd quarter of Grade 8 3. Grade 7 and 1 st and 2 nd quarter of Grade 8 behavior assessments 4. Students will be assessed by an Admissions Committee using a points system and will be selected using their points scored, the students with highest number of points will have first choice into the Career Exploratory Program Q: How does my student get a Career Technical Program Application? A: You can get applications for the Career Technical Programs through the Guidance Office at your student s school or from Mercer Administration Building at 269 First St. in Pittsfield. The deadline for applications to the Career Technical Program is April 1 st. Applications must be complete or they will be returned. If you have other questions regarding the Admissions Policy you can contact your student s Guidance Counselor. There will be informational material sent home on the Career Technical Education Programs, Open Houses at both high schools and other informational sessions. Thank You!
