 NJ Core Curriculum Content Standard 9.2 and Career Ready Practices Regional Workshops 

 

The New Jersey Department of Education’s Office of Career and Technical Education will host two regional half-day professional development workshops for school districts and charter schools on the recently adopted NJ Core Curriculum Content Standard (NJCCCS) 9.2, Career Awareness, Exploration and Preparation, and Career Ready Practices. These sessions will provide an overview of the updated standards, and also highlight best practices and available classroom ready resources and tools to support implementation, including Personalized Student Learning Plans (PSLPs) and the NJ Career Assistance Navigator (NJCAN), a state-supported, free online career exploration and planning tool that can be helpful in implementing PSLPs. All elementary, middle and high schools are responsible for implementing NJCCCS 9.2 and the Career Ready Practices as determined by local boards of education. 

 

Administrators, teachers and counselors interested in learning about the updated standards and Career Ready Practices should attend. The dates, times and locations for the workshops are:

As you may be aware, the Career Ready Practices reflect the career ready skills that students should be taught in all grade levels and reinforced in career exploration and preparation programs with increasingly higher levels of complexity and expectations. The Career Ready Practices are based on research with partners in both education and industry.
