On November 28, 2017 Mt. Angel School District (MASD) received final grant approval for the state Career and Technical Education (CTE) Revitalization Grant, titled "The Building Opportunities through Local Design (B.O.L.D.) program.  This is a great opportunity for Mt. Angel students and the surrounding community.  The $283,993 award is a two-year grant that runs from January 1, 2018-June 30, 2019.   B.O.L.D. is a sustainable project aligned with the Mt. Angel School District’s strategic plan to ensure all students graduate with twelve college credits and six career/technical education credits.  The BOLD program provides an innovative CTE program that incorporates real world work experiences through semester long high school Cooperative Work Experiences (CWE) with our local community partners.  Activities will begin in middle school with visits to local partners to highlight key components and job skills aligned with current learning objectives in the students’ courses. The culminating high school activity is a semester-long work experience that integrates core academic courses, CTE courses, and foundational work skills with a meaningful career-related experience.  Integration of Career Related Learning Experiences (CRLE’s) embedded within elementary, middle and high school core academic content will provide students an age-appropriate, integrated understanding of how their assignments lead to real world practice. The aligned curriculum, with Career Related Learning Experiences embedded within core academic content lead to Cooperative Work Experiences provide pathways that guide students toward high wage and high demand occupations.  MASD has hired Sarah Bauman at the grant coordinator to develop and implement all components of the B.O.L.D. program.  We look forward to the many opportunities this brings to all students and Mt. Angel Community.  Below is a link to the full version of the CTE Revitalization Grant Application.
