Our work in the area of the LA College Promise has caught the attention of many. The numbers are clear. Trade Tech went from 85 students during the 2017-18 school year, to more than 300 students in the program for the 2018-19 school year. This was truly a combined effort between pathways, high school outreach, STEAM, marketing, Bridges to Success, Admissions and Records and our district. Our job now is to build on this educational value and how much it means to the high school students in our communities. We have to make sure that gatekeepers on high school campuses understand the value as well. This has been a real Trade Tech team effort but we need to give our LACP team some extra kudos.
