Pathways Improvement Scope

Manhattan Beach Unified (MBUSD) plans to dual enroll their engineering classes as well as begin a data science pathway that will also be dual enrolled with El Camino College. They will be converting and revising their current Computer Science pathway into a CTE pathway that aligns with El Camino’s offerings. Advisory boards will be established to support these new pathways in work-based learning, pathway alignment, and curriculum development.
