Today's students are our future leaders in multiple fields and occupations including in education.
We are excited to share with you an opportunity for your high school seniors interested in the education field. The HSSIEP project is one step towards ensuring that future educators in MA have the skills to enter and succeed in the teaching profession and to ensure that we are working to diversify the educator pipeline. Funding for the program will be supported by DESE's Connecting Activities and Commonwealth Corporation's Youthworks program and supported through our 16 Regional MassHire Workforce Boards.
HSSIEP will provide work-based learning experiences in the field of education to highly motivated high school seniors in good academic standing, while supporting their school and community-based partners.
HSSIEP will largely build on current work-based learning structures to support implementation. The structures include a collaboration and partnership between DESE's Connecting Activities initiative, school districts throughout MA, Regional MassHire Workforce Boards, and the Commonwealth Corporations Youthworks program. Districts currently not engaged with their local workforce development system including Connecting Activities and Youthworks, will still have the opportunity to fully participate.
Support for High School Interns will be provided by career and technical student organization. This student organization will offer, through monthly meetings, an opportunity for students to learn instructional strategies to utilize during their internship and after high school, a community of practice to discuss challenges and success, and to reflect on their internship experience for deeper engagement and learning.
If your district is interested in participating, please complete the questionnaire as soon as possible, but not later than January 8, 2021.
To learn more about the HSSIEP project, please feel free to attend information sessions on December 23rd at 12:30 PM, January 4th at 11AM, and January 5th at 11AM.
