  • 3. TOM TORLAKSON State Superintendent of Public Instruction California Career Pathways Trust Intent of AB 86 Funds in the amount of $250 million was appropriated in the 2013-14 Budget Act for schools, community colleges, and their business partners to create pathways to careers in high- need, high-wage, and high-growth economic sectors. The intent of the California Career Pathways Trust (CCPT) is to build stronger connections between businesses, California schools, and community colleges to better prepare students for the 21st century workplace.
  • 4. TOM TORLAKSON State Superintendent of Public Instruction California Career Pathways Trust Intent of AB 86 The CCPT addresses two pressing issues: 1. Skills Gap – California’s unemployment rate is nearly 10%, yet employers in the state face a shortage of skilled workers in STEM-related careers. This is a gap between the skills and capacities acquired in high school and those most in need in the workplace.
  • 5. TOM TORLAKSON State Superintendent of Public Instruction California Career Pathways Trust Intent of AB 86 The CCPT addresses two pressing issues: 2. High Dropout Rate – Almost ¼ of new grade 9 will dropout before graduating. Many of these students lack the academic and technical readiness to succeed in college and career. Pathways programs that engage students in real-world work have been shown to increase academic success and persistence in school.
