Education Update
The probability that we may
fail in the struggle ought not to
deter us from the support of a
cause we believe to be just.
Abraham Lincoln
We are at a crossroads and there
are decisions we need to make.
• Do we plan for elimination or plan for integration?
(We need to be embedded in school district services)
• Do we plan for stagnation or plan for innovation?
(How can we better serve students and school districts?)
• Do we plan for self-preservation or program
continuation? (Keep the big picture in mind.)
• One thing is for sure ROP will have to reinvent itself
to survive in the new Local Control Funding environment.
Top 5 tips for Revitalizing
Your Business

to cut your operational costs
2. Work diligently on customer retention

Vision for ROP

• ROP courses are embedded in the core curriculum in all schools.
• ROP/ CTE programs become a graduation requirement and are a metric of
school accountability systems. (i.e.. API)
• All Santa Cruz County students, grades 7-12, are exposed to the advantages
of Career and Technical Education through the regional occupational
programs.
• SCCROP is connected to the regional business community.
• All ROP students participate in a CTE learning experience in the
community.
I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.

Strengths of ROP Program

from beyond the standard high school program.
• Instructors who have worked in the fields they are teaching.
• Commitment to career education & life long learning

Suggestions for
Improvement
• Stop hiring a "temporary" workforce
• More aggressive recruitment, Create strategies for promoting ROP
classes at the teachers' sites.
• More time for teachers to collaborate within shared curricular areas
• A more organized master calendar
• Possibly reduce redundant activities such as combining attendance
with the school districts.
• PD time that can be utilized for alignment of courses and
curriculum development instead of promotional theater for the
community.
Leadership Team Support of
Teachers
• More site visits.
• The leadership team is a mystery. Have a rotating teacher presence on this
team. Who are "leadership team" members? How are decisions made &
implemented? Involve our teachers more in the process of decision
making/reporting
• Streamline responsibilities for teachers. Make our jobs easier by reducing
paperwork, i.e... make attendance reporting digitized and have the same
attendance layout with the site's attendance
• More teacher collaboration time at the meetings
• Have "peer round tables" to exchange ideas of teaching
methodologies/Encourage PD meetings for collaboration with our subject
matter experts
