Student Success Through High School and Community College Partnerships
This session will look through the lens of Kannapolis City Schools (KCS) and Rowan-Cabarrus Community College (RCCC) in North Carolina, with attendees learning how to build successful partnerships between local education agencies and community college partners. This successful partnership has culminated in KCS being recognized for the NC Works Award of Distinction as an Outstanding Innovative Partnership, CTE Regional Director of the Year, and Game Changer Award recipient.
Building on lessons learned through the KCS-RCCC partnership, we will share how each educational entity has worked to ensure that the dynamics of diversity, equity, access, and inclusion are a priority in the partnership. We’ll offer an interactive activity focused on diversity, equity, access, and inclusion to identify the core values and beliefs of the participants and their respective educational agencies. Additionally, we will share how we choose dual enrollment career and technical education pathways that are taught on the high school campus, and how we are continuing to expand our equity and access focus through locally articulated credit.
