Connecting Activities (CA) is a Department of Elementary and Secondary Education initiative that supports college and career readiness for all students.
There are two tiers of participation for schools in Connecting Activities: High schools that are “Partners” of the network, and those that are “Members.” Here are definitions of each category:
Network Member: Staff of the school connect with the Connecting Activities program through use of the massconnecting.org website, the Massachusetts Career Ready database, occasional special events and conferences, online resources, participation in statewide, regional or citywide Connecting Activities programs or other connections. Schools assume no obligations as members.
Partner School: District/school leadership has explicitly agreed with its local Workforce Investment Board (WIB) to enter a partnership so that the school can be active in the Connecting Activities initiative, and it has designated one or more staff in the school who will coordinate work-based learning and/or career development activities through Connecting Activities. Both the school and the Connecting Activities initiative commit resources to the partnership, such as staff time, space, technology, scheduling, communications and/or other supports.
We invite schools to become members by completing the form in the link below. (Partner status, which involves an exchange of resources with a WB, would be mutually agreed upon with that WB. Partner schools can be added as resources are available.)
