Butte College, Butte County Office of Education and High Schools Throughout the County are Creating New Pathways EdSource has updated an interactive map that allows users to locate 100's of CTE academies in California. CTE programs typically combine college-preparatory academics aligned to a specific career field – health care, for example – alongside real-world work experiences, including internships, job shadowing or mentoring opportunities. The map is part of an EdSource initiative focusing on preparing students for college and careers, which is the goal of current reforms such as the Common Core State Standards and the Local Control Funding Formula. Butte College, Butte County Office of Education and High Schools throughout the county are creating new pathways through a recently funded California Partnership Trust Grant to align CTE courses with academic courses.   Visit other academies and pathways in California at the following site:  Check out our new interactive map on career academies in California high schools for 2013-2014.   Visit website.
