From the CTE Technical Assistance Center of NY: “Offering a quality Work-based Learning program has become a priority for many school districts. During the past five plus years, New York schools have embraced the value of career and technical education pathways to graduation and the issuance of the CDOS Commencement Credential – a new, exiting credential for special needs students. Both of these educational initiatives call upon the inclusion of offering our students a quality work-based learning experience.
