Letter from the CTE Coordinator
Dear Santa Clara County Community,
We are in uncharted waters with school shut downs during the Covid 19 Pandemic. Because many will be working with students at home, we wanted to share with you some important free resources from the CDE. Though some of these resources do have a fee for more access, all have free access at basic levels. We hope you take some time to research career choices (Career Zone is an excellent resource) and start touring virtually all your future college and careers. I will continue to update this webpage for more resources in college and career.

Online and Distance Learning ResourcesWhether you are teaching from a virtual classroom, counseling students on higher education opportunities, or researching opportunities on work-based learning, we are all here to ensure our students are receiving the support they need. With shelter-in-home in full session, how can educators continue to assist students, families, and community during this time?
As we begin exploring alternative platforms and other creative sources for students to learn from home, here are a few resources to help transition and kickstart your switch to online and distance learning. 1. The CA Department of Education site has listed many resources from desiging online courses for students to information about school lunches and other logistics. Please click here or the hyperlinked name for more information.
2. Roadtrip Nation is a great place to start as students begin thinking about turning interests, hobbies and passions into something they pursue as a career. Using project-based programs to blend their learning format, middle school to post-high school students can foster authentic career exploration through interactive lessons and engaging in multimedia content, For more information please click on the name or use the following link: https://roadtripnation.org/.
3. For additional support for CTE and Career Development, ACTE (Assocation for Career and Technical Education) is announcing their free online courses for CTE teachers through their online portal CTE Learn. In addition, for disciplinary specific and cross-disciplinary resources available through their main page.
AP Updates for Schools During COVID-19
The health and safety of educators and students are the AP® Program's highest priorities during this challenging time. College Board is supporting AP students with free, optional
remote learning and at-home AP testing. These options will give students the
opportunity to earn the college credit and placement they've been working
