Greenbush – The Southeast Kansas Education Service Center in partnership with the Kansas Center for Career and Technical Education at Pittsburg State University was awarded a federal grant under the Career & Technical Education (CTE) Teacher Pathway Initiative to implement a Kansas Statewide CTE Mentoring Network. Objectives of the project include:
-Partner with the Kansas Center for Career & Technical Education to enhance and expand their mentoring program aligned with state and national standards for best practices in mentoring.
-Develop an online Community of Practice to institutionalize mentoring best practices, including developing Explorations modules for deeper learning.

-Increase the number of trained CTE mentors within Kansas
-Develop a sustainable mentoring program to support the recruitment and retention of new CTE teachers in Kansas.
