The career pathways framework promotes systemic reform for community colleges -- providing a model that better aligns their various mission areas of workforce development, academic credentialing, transfer preparation, and remediation with the needs of employers. Pathways commonly feature community colleges working in partnership with other educational entities, workforce and economic development agencies, employer and labor groups, and social service providers to ensure that investments in education and training pay off for the region's economic vitality. Students entering into adult literacy or college remedial coursework are better able to advance to and succeed in college-level programs, and all students can more readily earn postsecondary credentials and make progress toward a career. Incumbent workers are provided training opportunities that help increase their skills and subsequent wages.
Program/Student eligibility is determined via the following two income categories:
• Low Income adults with dependent children, under the age of 21 living in the household, earning less than or equal to the federal poverty limit
• Families with adults and dependent children, under the age of 21 living in the household, whose income is above the federal poverty limit, but less than 250% of the federal poverty limit
Income sources used as evidence for verification:
• Latest federal tax return (1040 orW-2)
• Pay slips or Check Stubs (Household)
The following table will be used to compare the household income for eligibility verification:
• Employability Certification
• Adult Education
• Short Term Training
• Two-year degree programs
• Transportation Vouchers
• Course Related Supplies
• Job Search
• Workforce Skills Training
