The following applicant has been preliminarily selected to receive a grant for the 2012-2013 Advanced Technical Credit (ATC) grant program.
The purpose of the 2012-2013 ATC grant program, also known as statewide articulation, is to support students interested in preparing for college and a technical career that requires postsecondary education. The program provides students with opportunities to earn college credit while in high school by taking enhanced high school Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses that have been aligned with postsecondary technical courses.
The ATC program provides: 1) the resources to support the statewide articulation process for CTE courses; 2) screening and documentation of secondary teachers to ensure that their credentials meet the requirements of the Southern Association of College Systems (SACS) accountability requirements; 3) a clearinghouse for secondary teacher credentials for the community college within the state of Texas for the SACS requirement; 4) professional development for all secondary CTE teachers teaching statewide articulated courses, moving from a face-to-face system of training to the use of technology in order to provide 24/7 online training; 5) support for a statewide ATC Leadership Committee that facilitates review and revision of existing as well as new course alignment.
