Good Morning,
I do appreciate the work that is being done on this matrix. Past legislation has watered down our focus and compromised our integrity. We are the springboard for any cluster that is currently in existence. STEM is such a vital part of what we do on a daily basis – Family and Consumer Sciences. It is important that we take a careful look at what we are doing to make sure we convey the message that we are vital in all of the clusters with major emphasis on specific ones. ERGG

Greetings State Administrators,

The NASAFACS Board has been working on a graphic to convey a framework for the role of FCS in CTE. The frameworks’ target audience is local, state and national CTE administrators. Hopefully the framework will convey how FCS equips students with both employability skills which may be foundational to all CTE pathways and specific CTE pathways aligned to the FCS discipline. You will see we took some creative liberty with the naming of pathways and cluster areas- it is our understanding that Advance CTE is working to revise the Career Clusters and we hope this framework will provide an opportunity to condense and refine the career clusters to better align to FCS as a program area within CTE. For example, the merging of Education with Human Services and the inclusion of Food Production (and thus Food Science) with Hospitality- think Research Chefs.

We are seeking your feedback on two draft options- the feedback you provide will help the board to finalize the framework. Once finalized we will develop accompanying text to provide further context and explanation and then we will send the graphic and text to CTE State Directors, the Alliance for FCS Education, and other constituents for promotion. The survey provides the option for you to not only give feedback, but to also opt out of having the graphic sent to your CTE State Director. If no action is taken it will be sent to your CTE State Director from NASAFACS.  There is also an option to add an additional state leader who you may want to receive the communique. Please complete the survey by close of business on Friday, August 31st.

Eventually, we plan to develop an interactive framework on the NASAFACS website which will allow interested constituents to see how the FCS National Standards 3.0 align to various aspects (i.e.- employability skills, career pathways, and cluster areas).

We know this graphic will not be able to meet all of our needs/wants, but in my opinion it is way overdue. Having a national unifying framework for how FCS supports career pathways will allow us all to work toward common vision of how it should be done. The framework will function as an advocacy tool and a visioning tool for state and local development of FCS programs. Ultimately, developing a more consistent application of FCS within the CTE program.

Thank you for taking the time to complete the survey and provide feedback. We understand it is a short turnaround time, but with Perkins V being legislated this past summer many states are working on their state plans and as mention Advance CTE is working on the Career Clusters- so we need to get this finalized as soon as possible.

PS- Please do not copy and share the draft frameworks, we will finalize very soon for you to promote and publicize.

Looking forward,
