Strategies & pathways

North State Together will leverage the Regional K-16 Education Collaborative to create occupational pathways that include accelerated degree/credential programs and work-based learning opportunities in healthcare and education within its 10-county network. The primary strategy of the K-16 Education Collaborative is to:

· Support college preparation and early credit;

· Retain students through inclusive supports;

· Implement high-tech, high-touch advising, and;

· Cultivate inclusive, engaging, and equity-oriented learning environments in education systems across the North State region.

North State Together would like to the thank our current county network teams, the five new counties who signed on to scale our successful cradle to career collective impact model, SCAILE, our amazing regional grant writing team, and all of the collaborative partners who wrote letters committing to creating a better future for our region. All of you made this grant application a success! We look forward to supporting you to create streamlined, equitable pathways from high school to postsecondary education and into the workforce.

The future:

North State Together Regional Model Expansion

North State Together K16 Collaborative

The work North State Together will do through this collaborative exemplifies Shasta College’s leadership in the North State. It also affirms the college’s vision as a nationally recognized model community college, leading within and outside of our community college district with innovative and creative approaches to increase student outcomes through ingenuity and bold systems transformation. We would like to thank all who contributed significant time and effort to ensure the success of the K-16 grant application, in addition to the community partners that have worked alongside NST to promote collective impact and align our region with this opportunity.
