Why Career Pathways?
Better prepare
students for
postsecondary
Fewer pathway students required to
take remedial courses;
Castellano (2007), cited in
Stipanovic, et al. (2012)
Dual credit =
increased
graduation rates
& persistence
Dual credit for CTE students: increased
likelihood of completing high school;
increased likelihood in enrolling in a 2or 4-year college; greater degree of
persistence in postsecondary
Karp, Calcagno, Hughes,
Jeong, & Bailey (2007) as
cited in Stipanovic, et al.
(2012)
Work based
learning =
smoother
transitions
Work based learning tends to result in
higher levels of student engagement in
school and greater success in the labor
market.
McCharen & High (2010);
Ryken (2004) both as cited
in Cairen, Withington, et al.
(2012)
Comprehensive
Guidance and
Career
Counseling
Leads to better career outcomes;
students who received career
development services reported greater
career awareness and higher levels of
career exploration and planning than
those who did not receive such services.
Lapan, Gysbers, & Sun
(1997); Utah State Office of
Education (2000); both as
cited in Cairen, Withington,
et al. (2012)
Why In Alaska?
• Drop out rate doubles national average
• Lowest college going rate in nation
• 50% first time college students at UAA
between 1998 and 2007 needed at least one
developmental course (UAA CAEPR, 2012)
• Alaska’s job growth and needs for an Alaskan
workforce.
