Pathways Improvement Scope
SIATech seeks to increase college access and success for its graduates, improve their employment outcomes to lift them out of poverty, and reduce equity and achievement gaps – all goals of the NFN Consortium Regional Plan. Our proposal includes increased classroom support crucial to students with great need (95% dropout and 100% low income) and few resources, as well as program enhancements to improve academic outcomes, enabling them to meet the needs of employers and earn a living wage.
Goals & Priorities
The SIATech Academy South schools will focus on supporting Health, ICT, and Transportation pathways to serve our Opportunity Youth, aged 16-24 from low socioeconomic backgrounds who are disconnected from work and school. The improvement project includes counseling support, CTE certificated HS staff, Career Exploration, Work based learning, college co-enrollment opportunities, and Coordinated PD for all staff.
