Regents to vote on career/tech rules
The Board of Regents for Elementary and Secondary Education has scheduled a vote today on new regulations for career and technical education. State officials say the change is aimed at making career readiness a priority in all schools, not just career and technical schools.
The new rules would require all public schools in Rhode Island to provide “career exploration” opportunities, such as internships. School districts would also have to pay out-of-district tuition for students who want to attend training programs not offered by their home districts.
Also on the agenda for today… Achievement First.
The controversial charter school proposal is not up for a vote, but the board is scheduled to review the application and the public testimony submitted so far.
