NCPTT’s Andy Ferrell and Christine Faith recently participated in a Preservation Trades High School Curriculum Summit. This meeting was funded through a cooperative agreement with NCPTT. Participants discussed the strengths and weaknesses of a variety of programs, but primarily focused on the models in place at the Brooklyn School of the Arts (BHSA) and the Randolph Career Technical Education Center.

The BHSA program was developed by the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) and was originally supported by NCPTT. The Randolph program integrates traditional skills training into existing courses. Representatives from NJIT and the Randolph School are discussing working together to test the teacher preparation program developed by NJIT and supported through an existing cooperative agreement with NCPTT.
