BaySCAN's World Wide
Web Site Goes Live
Effective immediately, bayscan.org is live and available for the world to see! Home of BaySCAN, the Bay Area School-to-Career Action Network, the web site is devoted to information about BaySCAN and it's school-to-career programs. BaySCAN is a coalition of business, labor, K-12 schools and school districts, community colleges, and 4-year colleges and universities, School-to-Career (STC) providers, and local STC partnership organizations aimed at developing a Bay Area regional infrastructure to support School-to-Career programs and initiatives.
The BaySCAN Web site was designed and developed by Autodesk Foundation Webmaster Dan Trimble and his digital media design company, EdgeMedia Networks. You can contact Dan by email at [email protected], and can find EdgeMedia on the web at www.edgemedia.net.
Education Careers Collaborative Launch
Ever wondered why -- when there are such severe teacher and administrator shortages -- there are so few school-to-career programs for future educators? BaySCAN and CSU Hayward's Dean of Education, Arthurlene Towner, are convening a meeting to strategize about this issue and launch plans to develop an Bay Area regional STC pathway for future educators.
This meeting will be Monday, December 8 from 2-4 pm in the President's Conference Room at CSU Hayward. If you will attend, RESPOND TO JOYCE PODEVYN () by December 1 and we will send directions. Joyce will mail a parking permit if you send your street address. If you are interested in the topic, but unable to attend, please let us know also.
