Outreach for K-12, Pennsylvania College of Technology, builds relationships with school districts, provides leadership to Penn College’s dual enrollment program and provides leadership to PDE in the implementation of the PA Career Education and Work Standards.
The office is funded by Penn College and a wide range of grants and contracts. The materials on this website combine materials created as part of contracts with Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency’s Creating Postsecondary Access Grants (PHEAA – CAPS) and materials created through the Career Development Leader’s Network with PA Department of Education’s Bureau of Career and Technical Education. Monica McCarty, a PA school counselor and school psychologist was a key contributor.
The office also manages the content on PA’s Toolkit for the implementation of the PA Career Education and Work standards, and manages the review process on the curriculum resources and materials for the CEW standards on the PA Standards Aligned System.
