Rigorous Program of Study (RPOS) Grant Project - Automotive Technology - Designing Maryland’s Transportation Programs of Study for the 21st Century

 

Overview:

 

Maryland is one of six states awarded a four-year grant by The U.S. Department of Education to develop a model Rigorous Programs of Study (RPOS) for Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs. A model RPOS incorporates ten framework elements that support the development and implementation of effective CTE programs. It also evaluates the effect of student participation in rigorous career and technical education programs of study that:

  1. Link secondary and postsecondary education
  2. Combine academic and career and technical education in a structured sequence of courses
  3. Offer students the opportunity to earn postsecondary credits for courses taken in high school
  4. Lead to a postsecondary credential, certificate, or degree.
