Career Pathways Math Summit Presentation November 17 2010

  1. 1.  Provide you with information about how well prepared our students are for college and career.  Familiarize you with college readiness standards and placement testing  Familiarize you with the math courses that students most often take at Community Colleges.  Look at the alignment of the NYS Regents Math courses with College Placement Tests and course-work.  Investigate effective strategies for improving college readiness in Math for students entering Technical Degree Programs
  2. 2.  To build seamless instruction through collaboration between HS and Colleges that will prepare students for entry into High Wage, High Demand, High Skill Jobs  Increase Educator’s knowledge of skill requirements for students’ successful navigation of Career Pathways  Increase the percentage of students who are “college ready,”  Provide educators with resources to improve readiness for college and careers through more precise instruction and applied learning that engages students

  12. 12.  Community colleges enroll more than 46% of all the nation’s college students.  Community colleges report that between 42% and 49% of incoming freshmen are not college ready in at least one core area: reading, math or writing.  Local community college faculty report that BOCES CTE students are prepared for their technical courses at college but often experience difficulties in required writing and math courses.
  13. 13.  Half of community college students recommended for a sequence of developmental courses fail to complete the first course in the sequence.  More than half the students who do complete their remedial sequence do not go on to pass their first college-level course.  As few as 18% to 25% of community college students who enroll in remedial courses earn an Associates Degree within 3 years.
