Hawai‘i P-20 Pathways Summit — April 2-3, 2019

Building Connected Paths for Students

Career pathways expand economic opportunity while preparing students for career and life success. Completing a high-quality career pathway improves academic achievement and increases likelihood of graduating high school, being prepared for college-level coursework, developing employability skills, and securing a living wage job. We need to consciously design these pathways so that the student experience is seamless, and our students can achieve their educational and career aspirations.
