Oklahoma Nontraditional Student Institute

The Oklahoma Department of Career and Technology Education is partnering with the National Alliance for Partnerships in Equity to present the Oklahoma Nontraditional Student Institute. The institute has been developed as part of the state’s failure to meet or exceed the local levels of performance in relation to the nontraditional core indicators. The institute consist of one-day professional development sessions at regional locations, conference calls/webinars and the two-day Oklahoma Nontraditional Student Summit.

The regional workshops will introduce participants to the NAPE-developed Explore Nontraditional Careers Toolkit, and the conference calls/webinars will provide opportunities for continued professional development in the toolkit’s implementation. The summit will serve as the culmination of the institute and will bring all participants together to share experiences and learn from each other. The second day of the summit will feature an afternoon session presented by ODCTE on how sites can implement the strategies they have learned through the institute into their local Carl Perkins applications for FY18.

Regional Workshops

The regional workshops are limited to 30 participants at each site. The workshops will be held from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. ODCTE is covering the cost of registration for sites, and lunch is on your own.
