How Gladeo aligns to California Funding

  • Middle School Foundation Academies Planning and Implementation Grant: Middle School Foundation Academies (MSFA) Planning and Implementation Grants will be funded at $1,000,000. This funding is for 14 planning and 13 implementation grants for middle school career academies ($25,000/$50,000 per Academy). The funds are from the Proposition 98 - Career Technical Education Initiative is included in the 2023-24 State Budget. The program aims to establish MSFAs to prepare students for participation in a complete, high-quality career technical education pathway at the local high school.

  • The California Career Technical Education Incentive Grant (CTEIG) program is established as a state education, economic, and workforce development initiative with the goal of providing pupils in kindergarten through grade twelve with the knowledge and skills necessary to transition to employment and postsecondary education. The purpose of this program is to encourage and maintain the delivery of career technical education (CTE) programs.

  • In summer 2018, the California legislature introduced the K12 Strong Workforce Program (K12 SWP) as an ongoing statewide funding opportunity. It is designed to support K–12 local education agencies (LEAs) in creating, improving, and expanding career technical education (CTE) courses, course sequences, programs of study, and pathways for students transitioning from secondary education to postsecondary education to living-wage employment.

    • Gladeo uses research-based career development strategies to present students participating in vocational and technical education programs with potential career paths.

    • Gladeo’s career development courses and platform provide support to career and technical programs and can be purchased as relevant curriculum, technology or professional development. 

    • Gladeo’s platform leverages online resources, interactive modules, and multimedia content to provide students with engaging and accessible career information. 

    • Students are able to connect with relatable role models through video interviews, profiles and success stories, further enhancing their career exploration. Exposure to real-world professionals helps students gain insights into different careers and envision their own future paths. 

    • Gladeo’s curriculum helps students identify the education or training typically required for different CTE career paths. Students gain an understanding of the educational pathways necessary to their desired career and Gladeo helps them set goals and make informed decisions about their educational pursuits. 

    • Gladeo’s career development courses and platform facilitate student exploration and selection of learning opportunities leading to career paths.
