NYS P-TECH Cohort 1 Funding Update

 

UPDATE 5/1/20:

Attached for your records is a memo providing new guidance for the NYS P-TECH Program. 

Please be advised that New York State’s 2020-21 Enacted Budget provided the Director of the Budget with the authority to reduce aid-to-localities appropriations and disbursements by any amount needed to achieve a balanced budget, as estimated by the Division of the Budget (DOB).  

The DOB is currently preparing a detailed financial plan, scheduled to be delivered to the State Legislature sometime in May 2020, itemizing the specific appropriations and disbursements that will be reduced or withheld in order to achieve $8.2 billion in recurring reductions in aid-to-localities spending. This plan may include budgetary changes that will limit the funding available for the NYS P-TECH Program in 2020-21 and subsequent fiscal years.

We will continue to keep you updated to the best of our ability as we move through these truly extraordinary times.

Purpose

The New York State Pathways in Technology (NYS P-TECH) program is a public-private partnership that will prepare thousands of New York students for high-skills jobs of the future in technology, manufacturing, healthcare and finance.  The NYS P-TECH model delivers five core benefits to students:

  • A rigorous, relevant and cost-free “grades 9 to 14” education focused on the knowledge and skills students need for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) careers;
  • Workplace learning that includes ongoing mentoring by professionals in the chosen career sector, worksite visits, speakers and internships;
  • Intensive, individualized academic support by K-12 and college faculty within an extended academic year or school day that enables students to progress through the program at their own pace;
  • An Associate of Applied Science degree in a high-tech field; and
  • The commitment to be first in line for a job with the participating business partners following completion of the program.

The program is also designed to:

  • Develop programs of study in high-wage, high-skill, high-demand career areas;
  • Align school, college and community systems in these programs of study;
  • Support strong academic performance;
  • Promote informed and appropriate career choice and preparation; and
  • Ensure that employers in key technical fields have access to a talented and skilled workforce.

Through these programs of study, students will be able to earn transcript college credit toward an Associate degree. Career pathways begin in grade nine and include workplace learning and high school and college coursework. The pathway provides a seamless sequence of study extending through two years of postsecondary career and technical education which culminates in an A.A.S degree.
