Lynda Jackson
Director, Technology Centers That Work

Tech centers, technology centers, technical centers, career centers and career-technical (CT) centers all have a common purpose: to provide high-quality CT studies to high school students. Students may attend these centers for only a portion of the school day, week or year, or they may attend full time, receiving both academic and technical instruction at the center.

The Technology Centers That Work (TCTW) school improvement initiative was formed in 2007 to help these shared-time centers review and implement the actions needed to produce high-demand, high-wage graduates who will be leaders in their selected careers. The network now includes more than 180 sites in 18 states.

SREB provides member sites with staff development, technical assistance, publications and assessment services. TCTW sites participate in the biennial High Schools That Work (HSTW) Assessment and the TCTW Teacher Survey, designed specifically for teachers in shared-time centers. 

National Technology Centers That Work Leaders’ Forum

The forum is focused on creating opportunities for participants to have an open dialogue regarding issues facing technology centers and to hear from peers about successful practices that have positively impacted student performance. Participants will learn how to help our country meet the workforce needs of business and industry, develop knowledge of how the new rigorous standards are impacting the content and instructional methodology of CT programs, and improve their ability to provide quality school leadership and culture of the shared-time centers.

The Seventh Annual National TCTW Leaders' Forum will be held January 27-29, 2015 at the Grand Hotel Marriott in Point Clear, Alabama.
