Dear Colleagues –
The Division of Academic and Technical Education (DATE) extends congratulations to the States of Delaware, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Tennessee and Wisconsin that will each receive $2 million over three years to expand and improve career pathways for all high school students.
JPMorgan Chase & Co. today announced nearly $20 million in grants to ten states to dramatically increase the number of students who graduate from high school prepared for careers. These state grants are one part of the $75 million, five-year New Skills for Youth initiative developed by JPMorgan Chase & Co., in collaboration with the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), Advance CTE and Education Strategy Group, aimed at strengthening career-focused education starting in high school and ending with postsecondary degrees or credentials aligned with high-skill jobs.
