Through a partnership with the Marin County Office of Education (MCOE), programming at the Intel Clubhouse will be aligned with the Regional Occupational Program (ROP) curriculum for 21st century technical skills through the use of technology. The new curricular structure for the Marin ROP Media Center activities will incorporate the California Department of Education’s (CDE) Foundation Standards in the Multimedia and Engineering Industry Sectors. The Marin County Office of Education School To Career Partnership will provide high-quality, work-based learning opportunities for both middle and high school students in technology and engineering career areas.
The Marin ROP Media Center classes will allow high school students to earn high school credits, as well as articulating class work for community college credit. The curriculum will follow the STEM-A (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math through Art) as its model. Each class is required to have an industry-approved advisory committee for feedback on industry standards and employer expectations.
Through this collaborative project, MCOE and the Intel Clubhouse will insure that Marin County high school students have the opportunity to develop their 21st century toolbox. To this end, all ROP students in these classes will create an electronic or E-portfolio following the ROP/STC Work Readiness Certificate guidelines. Students will also earn industry certificates to get ahead in both today’s and tomorrow’s job market.
