Welcome to the new and exciting "Education Pathway" offered at Santiago High School! The Orange County Teacher Pathway Partnership (OC TPP) is a collaboration with Santa Ana College, California State University, Fullerton, the Future Educators Association, JPL/NASA, and local after-school providers. The OC TPP is set up to provide High School students the opportunity to earn College Credits prior to Graduation. To become active in the Education Pathway you can start by joining the "Future Educators of America Club" on campus at Santiago (you can email me from this site) and read below on the exciting courses available.
DUAL-CREDIT/ DUAL-ENROLLMENT COURSE
The most exciting news to share is the after school FREE "Dual-Credit Course" offered by Santa Ana College. The students who complete both semesters in course(s) Human Development 120/121 will earn 6 College Units and 10 High School Elective Credits. This is the first time Dual Enrollment has ever been offered in the Garden Grove School District and is only open to GGUSD high school students. Students will also have FULL Access to Santa Ana College resources during the year. (See flyer attached below for more details).
The class will be held at Santiago HS and is welcome to all GGUSD High Schools. The Human Development 120 class starts this Fall 2015 after school on Wednesday, September 16th from 3:05-6:30pm and ends Wednesday, December 16th. Students will also need to enroll in the Human Development 121 class that starts in the Spring. Each class is worth 3 College Units and 5 HS Elective Credits. You must take HUD 120 prior to HUD 121.
Enrollment information will be posted soon!
There are many other classes offered by the Education Pathway such as:
Child Development (UC) 3 Units, Careers in Education I, and Careers in Education II.
It is our goal to provide students the opportunity to earn 10-16 college credits upon Graduation and a possible Certificate from SAC that will prepare you for a job in an After School Program.
CSUF Future Teacher Summer Residential Program. Students involved in the Education Pathway have many opportunities to participate in exciting new programs such as the CSUF Residential Program. Students were invited to stay at CSUF for 3 nights/4 days where students received hands-on learning experiences that connected the material learned in the classroom to skills used for teaching. Evenings were filled with fun social and recreational activities. The students that attended the program this Summer loved it and said it was a wonderful experience.
I have attached a flyer for the After School College Course and a link for the OC TPP Press Release for additional information. I am so excited and honored to be part of the Education Pathway. It provides such an amazing opportunity for student's district wide!
