The results are CTE courses that meet the University of California "A-G" requirements.

Institute expenses, including substitute teacher coverage, will be paid through the Career Pathways Grant.  District/school commitments will include release time for "teacher teams" that will be developing the courses on January 29 and January 30, 2016.
