The Manchester Public Schools College and Career-Academy Advisory Board is made up of educators and community members who are committed to ensuring that all Manchester Public School students are provided with authentic, real-world experiences that prepare them for college and career success. We believe that, through collaboration with college, business and community partners, Manchester Public Schools will ensure that learning is personalized, innovative, independent and connected to students’ personal interests and aspirations through the development of authentic experiences that enable them to engage in career exploration and immersion. Ad-hoc advisory committees will be established as needed to ensure that career and technical instructional experiences, programs and assessments are created, improved and assessed to ensure alignment with industry accepted standards. Advisory Boards will assist to increase the number of work-based learning experiences available to all students (job shadows, UELPS) and promote awareness of careers associated with all CTE program areas in school and within the community.
