6 Mission APS career academy aims to provide all high school students with access to careerand technology-focused learning opportunities in partnership with community, government agencies, colleges, universities and technical schools. 06

7 Benefits of Repurposing Kennedy MS Site Benefits students Repurposes a closed school facility Creates a viable structure in the community Responds to community request for more technical education Meets important requirements Centralized location Large facility Expansion capacity Classroom size and layout Auditorium Docks for delivery needs Close to Atlanta University Center 07

8 Historical Shift Nation at Risk, United States school reform recommended that computer literacy be a component of the high school curriculum The authorization of Carl D. Perkins legislation reformed comprehensive high schools, and components of the model were eliminated Carl D. Perkins Legislation IV required that vocational education be referred to as career technical education

9 Vocational vs. Career Technical Education Vocational Focuses on practical skills Ability to perform tasks related to a specific industry Students are prepared for manufacturing and construction related jobs Career Technical Focuses on advanced technology and the developments made in computer and digital information More computer oriented Students are prepared for more technical related jobs 09

10 A Career Academy Is Designed to... Integrate an engaging and rigorous curriculum that aligns to projected national, state and local workforce demands and pathways Build partnerships with local businesses, educational institutions and other community stakeholders Prepare students for post secondary college and career readiness options 010

11 A Career Academy Is Designed to... Allow students to maintain enrollment in their zoned high schools with broader access to participate in career pathways currently not offered on campus Increase opportunities for students to participate in dual enrollment for exposure to college level coursework Offer students expanded opportunities to complete certification programs in Georgia s 17 career pathways and earn industry recognized credentials 011

20 Career Academy Model The state has settled on the charter school model for all career academies in Georgia. The state uses this model because career academies need flexibility in order to offer innovative programming and set rigorous performance goals. Flexibility provides ability to hire industry experts to prepare students for their future careers. The career academy will have close ties with the district. Parents, community members, the business community, colleges and universities will have increased access and a greater voice in school governance through a school-level governing board. 020

21 Differences Between a Start-Up and Conversion Charter School Start-up charter schools are largely independent from the district. District only provides minimal oversight. The governing board is completely independent from APS. If a start-up school closes, it does not reopen. Conversion charter schools and the district are dependent upon one another. The school will be managed by the governing board, which includes the community, as well as APS representatives, business and higher education members. If a conversion charter closes, it reverts to a traditional school. 021

22 Conversion Application Process Converting a school to a charter requires approval by a majority of staff members and parents from the converting school. Approval will not be linked to current staffing or other program specifics. Final approval will be granted by the Atlanta Board of Education and the State Board of Education. Public input is part of both of these processes. 022

23 How Will My Vote Impact the Decision? A No Vote Kennedy may become vacant until another use is found. If left vacant, the facility will no longer be a viable part of the community. The community will not benefit from opportunities to prepare students to become college and career ready through expanded offerings of a career academy. The Kennedy community may lose direct access to the services and amenities planned at the school. The jobs that would otherwise have been offered at the career academy will not be created. A Yes Vote The final decision will need to be approved by the Atlanta Board of Education and then by the State Board. Public input is part of both of these processes. Students will have more opportunities for post-secondary preparation. The facility will be repurposed instead of closed. The academy addresses the community request s for more technical education. The facility will be close to the Atlanta University Center. 023
