Oklahoma Plans Programs of Study Institute


Moving from POS to RPOS in OK

During Summer Conference 2012 I had the opportunity to present to Instructional Leaders and to the Career Services areas over Programs of Study, and more specifically over "Moving from Programs of Study to Rigorous Programs of Study in Oklahoma."

Programs of Study are the right thing to do for students and is supported by the work of SREB though Technology Centers That Work and High Schools That Work. POS are part of the Pathways to Prosperity report by Harvard University and are a major component of the new vision for CTE as shared by the National State Directors. POS are a part of the current Carl Perkins legislation, and indications are that it will play an even larger role in future authorizations.

POS are not new but the increased emphasis is. The challenge will be helping institutions (high schools, technology centers, community colleges) see where their POS currently are, and helping them move to RPOS.

The work of the POS Work Group, as part of the National Programs of Study Institute, will be shared with the Oklahoma Programs of Study Institute scheduled to start next month. The vision for Oklahoma's Programs of Study will be shared at the Oklahoma Programs of Study Summit in 2013.

These are exciting times for CTE in Oklahoma. Through the programs of Study, we will enhance opportunities for Oklahoma's CTE students to excel.
