Oklahoma Programs of Study Summit
The Oklahoma Programs of Study Summit will be held on Feb. 27, 2013, at the South Penn Campus of Moore-Norman Technology Center.
The Oklahoma Department of Career and Technology Education was an active participant in the National Research Center for Career and Technical Education’s first National Programs of Study Institute. Using the national model, ODCTE developed the Oklahoma Programs of Study Institute to assist local institutions in moving from Programs of Study to Rigorous Programs of Study. Nine participants representing high schools, technology centers and associate of applied science degree granting institutions participated.
Summit participants will hear from the national institute team as well as the participants of the Oklahoma institute. Several examples of how the components of the RPOS framework work together will be presented. Definitions and clarifications of Programs of Study and how the Individual Career Plan fits with RPOS and more will be discussed.
Programs of Study are a required component of the current Carl Perkins legislation. Rigorous Programs of Study are expected to play an even larger role in the next version of Perkins. To help institutions start planning now, the summit was developed. If you are new to Perkins or consider yourself a Perkins expert and work with Perkins as an administrator, instructor, guidance personnel or grant manager you should attend the summit. Registration is free, but required, as seating is limited to the first 260 people registered.
