Education and Workforce Partnership Efforts

  • A new model for high school education, one that doesn’t focus on getting students ready for college but actually includes college-level, credit-bearing coursework in the curriculum. PTECH is a new model for secondary education that trades classrooms for “innovation spaces” and ditches lectures for group collaboration and hands-on learning. Here, students take the lead role in their learning, choosing pathways to their careers and take college-level, credit-bearing courses from their first year. PTECH aims to look and function more like a hybrid between college and the workplace. The 4- to 6-year sequence emphasizes individualized pathways to completion, workplace experiences, mentorship, in-depth project-based learning and real-world experiences.

  • Ag PTECH seeks to redefine secondary education with a project-based learning curriculum that focuses on skills in nine career clusters — agricultural business, agricultural science, agricultural engineering technology focused on power machinery, animal industry, biological technology, culinary arts, environmental studies, sustainable crop production, and fisheries and wildlife technologies.Ag PTECH was born when a consortium of Canajoharie Central School District, HFM BOCES, local businesses and area colleges was one of seven winners in the third round of New York State Pathways in Technology Early College High School (PTECH) partnership awards announced Nov. 6, 2015 by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
