Description for program track
The path starts with BEdA. Guided Pathways is a student-centered framework designed to ensure equitable student aspiration, access, economic progress, and educational and career attainment are possible. This framework must include adult learners enrolled in Basic Education for Adults programs across the state of Washington. This strand will explore the role of two critical aspects of Guided Pathways, Program Mapping and Pathway Funding. Join facilitators from across the SBCTC Education Division and practitioners across the state as we approach what it can look like to center BEdA in Guided Pathways.
The Guided Pathway’s framework must include adult learners enrolled in our Basic Education for Adults programs across our college and community-based organizations. College students are more likely to complete a degree quickly if they choose a program and develop an academic plan early on. In BEdA, we know that the paths to college programming start with BEdA. Explore how reforming education starts with the inclusion of BEdA in Guided Pathways to better enable our students to pass required gateway courses and get on a path that leads from BEdA to post-secondary programming completion.

Mapping is essential to the framework of Guided Pathways. Moreover, mapping is more than arrows, lines, and graphs. Program mapping involves providing an array of supports. This session provides tips and tools that can aid in BEdA departments gaining buy-in from their institution to adjust their structured pathways, to begin with, BEdA.

Higher education cost most often boils down to access to financial support. Braided funding is an essential tool for addressing the lack of resources for on-ramp programs. In addition, many programs offered through our CTCs and state partners can be used to support student retention, completion, and retention. Join this session to examine how braided funding can support programmatic strategies and participating students.
