I will be reaching out to a number of programs that have career academies/linked learning/cte programs to find out how they did it. If you're with a school that made this transition successfully, please post your answers to these questions in this thread: How did you get your district/administration's support? How/with what resources did you make the case to them? What sorts of support services do you have for those students in academies/pathways? What sorts of PD do you make available for teachers? Anything else you'd like to share with the edutopia community on your experience creating a program like this? thanks!
