Summary: In Spring 2020, Northgate High School submitted and received approval to teach a pilot course -- Animation III. Over the course of the last year and a half, Northgate High School offered the course, testing out the curriculum and the assessments. Despite the limited opening of the schools in 2020-2021, the instructor, Michele Carmon, was able to deliver the curriculum and obtain feedback from the students. Based on her assessment of the curriculum and the feedback from the students, Ms. Carmon finalized the course of study and is seeking Board Approval for the final draft of the course. The course is a capstone course for the Animation pathway, currently only being taught at Northgate High School. It is aligned to the CTE Model Standards and provides opportunities for industry certification for its students.

MDUSD has two Residential and Commercial Construction Pathways - one at Mt. Diablo High School and one at Concord High School. Currently, the first course in the pathway is not aligned to the pathway and focuses on woodworking techniques rather than construction. Mt. Diablo High School and Concord High School are seeking to pilot a new course - Construction I - that will serve as the first course of the sequence. The course will provide an overview of the different construction trades as well as introducing students to basic construction skills. The course is aligned to the CTE Model Standards and is modeled after A-G approved classes. Finally, it has already received A-G approval.
