EQUITY AND ACCESS IS A PROCESS, WE’LL HELP YOU CREATE AND SUSTAIN PROGRESS IN EQUITY AND ACCESS FOR CTE STUDENTS FROM SPECIAL POPULATIONS.

The California Joint Special Populations Advisory Committee (JSPAC) is committed to empowering educators with equity and access resources to address barriers to opportunities for Career Technical Education students related to special populations.

We Empower with Equity and Access to enhance the Career and Technical Education field, encourage girls, women, boys, and men to explore and enter into training programs and careers that are non-traditional by gender as well as high-wage and high-demand.

JSPAC is a committee comprised of educators from the K-12, adult education, community colleges (CC), and public and private sector.

Our members are equity-based capacity building leaders. Together these members have invested a long-term commitment to make and sustain progress of empowering with equity and access for educators.

 

We Cultivate Equity

Equity is a process which involves creating and sustaining progress. Our committee members are active equity-based capacity building leaders setting high expectations, engagement, expansion and professional growth for educators.

What the committee says about cultivating equity

 

Our Actions

Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Improvement Act of 2006 State Leadership funding supports our ongoing efforts to:

  1. Identify and disseminate specialized curriculum materials and resources to support services to Special Populations.

  2. Expand linkages with other programs for which equity and access to Special Populations is mandated by funding sources and for which that service is critical to program success; share information on best practices; coordinate and leverage resources to maximize the number of students who can be served; and incorporate the expertise, resources, and support those having a stake in assuring all students succeed in school and the workforce, including business and labor, and community-based organizations.

  3. Continue to expand the strong relationship between the CCCCO and CDE in service to students who are members of special populations and involve other Special Populations staffing in all Perkins VTEA planning and implementation.

  4. Create linkages with other state and federal agencies serving the identified Special Populations and offer jointly developed professional development and technical assistance opportunities.
