Cleveland City Schools Receives 3 Tennessee Pathways Certifications

Tuesday, November 12, 2019

Cleveland City Schools announces that Cleveland High School received Tennessee Pathways Certification in three Career and Technical Education programs: Diagnostic Medicine, Medical Therapeutics, and Mechatronics.

The Tennessee Pathways Certification recognizes high schools that have developed clear and guided pathways for their students that are built upon partnerships among K-12, postsecondary education, and employers.

Cleveland High School applied for certification in three programs and was awarded the Tennessee Pathways Certification in all three programs.

Director of Schools Dr. Russell Dyer said, “I am proud of the accomplishments Cleveland High School’s CTE Department has achieved. This prestigious certification will support students in their quest to experience rigorous real-world applications, industry certifications, and early post-secondary opportunities. Our students will be better prepared to enter the in-demand, high skill, high wage future workforce.”

Supervisor of Career and Technical Education Renny Whittenbarger said “This certification is a result of the continuous support and direction from our business/industry partners as they voice the latest trends related to business/industry needs. Though the process was demanding, it’s a confirmation of the great work our administrators, teachers, and students are doing on a daily basis in our CTE department as we prepare students for their post-high school opportunities.”

In the Health Science Cluster, Cleveland High School has five instructors across all 10 Health Science Academy courses. CHS averages over 600 requests annually for Health Science Academy courses. Cleveland High School’s Mechatronics pathway consists of two teachers with 182 enrollment requests for the 2019/2020 school-year.

Tennessee Pathway Certified Program and 2019/2020 Program Cluster Enrollment
Diagnostic Medicine 590 in the Health Science Cluster
Medical Therapeutics 590 in the Health Science Cluster
Mechatronics 182 in the Mechatronics Cluster

The Tennessee Pathway Certification recognizes high school pathways with a defined labor market need, a progression of high school coursework that includes early postsecondary opportunities, and a series of work-based learning experiences with at least one employer partner. High-quality pathways accelerate progress toward a postsecondary credential thus increasing student postsecondary success and easing the transition from K-12 into higher education and the workforce.
