NCC is facilitating a conference call between NYSED and MA DESE on March 18, 2014. NCC has been supporting NYSED’s efforts to develop alternative pathways to graduation and to support students, who are offtrack in credits, to graduate by expanding and enhancing the rigor of CTE in large and small cities. NYSED staff will discuss their questions and context, and MA DESE staff will share information on their Early Warning Information System, workbased learning efforts, support for overage and undercredited students, and other policies and strategies that have been successful in supporting special populations. A follow-up webinar for all Northeastern states is planned for May.
