Career Technical Education/ROP
Matt Perry, Ed.D., Assistant Superintendent
LINKS is a groundbreaking Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) career technical education model aimed at helping high-risk students succeed. Services are tailored to individual students based on their specific needs instead of traditional, scripted education.
The LINKS model focuses on:
- Core and intervention academic instruction tied to individualized student needs
- Setting bold goals and creating student success plans relevant to college and career aspirations
- Enhancing career education and providing job opportunities
- Building strong partnerships with education agencies and the business community
- Connecting students to adult mentors who provide supportive guidance
The LINKS model is now infused into the curriculum implemented in programs serving all SCOE Court and Community School students and Special Education students at Leo A. Palmiter Jr./Sr. High School. By teaching employability skills, practicing those skills in a "real life" environment, and providing positive adult connections, students succeed in measurable ways.
