 Purpose: This grant opportunity will provide a “comprehensive” high school – traditional high schools that offer career and technical education programs – with financial support and program development expertise to develop and implement a P-TECH 9-14 model program. This model, which was developed in partnership with IBM and the City University of New York, will be delivered through an academy approach. It aims to strengthen students’ technical, academic and employability skills in a STEM pathway while they attain a secondary diploma and earn a no-cost postsecondary degree. Under this model, high school is extended to grades 9-14 with the desired outcome of students graduating with a high school diploma and a two-year postsecondary degree (Associate Degree). The coursework is aligned to industry needs and provides workplace opportunities and internship experiences leading to hiring preference commitments from industry partners
