Career Pathways records can be entered in mass for students on the Career Pathway Dashboard page but they can also be entered individually by student. The Career Pathways page can be accessed on the Navigation tree under the Student Data | Programs node. The following page will display for the selected student with no Career Pathways.
To add a Career Pathway to a student, click on the dropdown arrow next to Career Pathways. Next click on Add New Career Pathway.
Select a Career Pathway from the Pathway drop down list.
The Completed checkbox can be used to designate the Pathway as Completed for the student. If the Completer field on the student Career Pathways page is selected, the CALPADS SCTE record will populate field 11.14 - CTE Pathway Completion field with the Academic Year ID.
A comment can also be added about the Pathway.
After all information is added, click the Insert button to save the information.
After a Pathway is selected and saved for a student, the Career Pathways page will display additional areas to record information regarding History, Experiences and Outcomes associated with the Pathway.
To add History information to the Pathway for the student, click on the Add History Record button.
NOTE: The History record is required for CALPADS reporting for the CTE Completion Academic Year element. Only students who are concentrating or completing the pathway should have a History record. These students will be included in the CALPADS SCTE file. Students that only take the introductory course are considered non-concentrating participants and should not have a History record. Additionally, any student who takes just one course (regardless of the level) in a 3 or more year pathway, is considered a non-concentrating participant and should not have a History record. Please reference the Career Pathways FAQ page for more information.
An area will display to add History information including Academic Year, School and Comment. After any information is added, click on the Update button to save the information.
To add Experience information, click on the Add Experience button. An Experience and Date is needed for California Career Pathways Trust (CCPT) reporting.

An area will display to add Outcome information including an Outcome and a Comment. After any information is added click on the Update button to save the information.
Career Pathways Widget
The Career Pathways widget is visible on the student's Profile page located on the navigation tree under the Student Data | Profile node.
Students with a Career Pathway (CPW.CD) record will display the widget to User and Teacher type accounts who have read to Career Pathways (CPW), Student Classes (SEC), Transcripts (HIS) and Class Schedule History (CAR) tables.
The widget displays each course in a pathway and the individual history for that student. This information displays whether or not the students are currently scheduled or have transcript records in these particular courses. It will display the course title, number, and course Level (CCP.LVL) as defined within the Career Pathway Dashboard. The Grade, Credits completed, Year, and Term is pulled from the student's transcript. The Current Course column shows if the course is currently in the student's Class Schedule (SEC).
Any completer course (CCP.LVL = 03) with a grade less than a "C-" will appear in red.
Any pathway course, regardless of its level, will appear in red if the student has earned zero (0) credits.
