San Diego County College and Career Readiness Consortium

California Career Pathways Trust (CCPT)

Steering Committee

The Steering Committee meets monthly and includes a designated member from each partner district, representatives of the Executive Committee, a representative from the WIB, local Economic Development Councils, Chambers of Commerce and local employers. The United Way supports the Steering Committee and convenes the full CCRC to fulfill its objectives.

The focus of the Steering Committee meeting alternates every other month between instructional programs and business connections with reporting from each of the key workgroups. The Work-based Learning and Pathway Development workgroups will be addressed at the steering committee meetings with a focus on connections between schools and industry. Professional Development and Data and Accountability workgroups will be a part of each meeting’s agenda.
