Killexams : SVVSD embraces early college P-TECH program

Jul. 30—Abraham Tinajero was an eighth grader when he saw a poster in his Longmont middle school's library advertising a new program offering free college with a technology focus.

Interested, he talked to a counselor to learn more about P-TECH, an early college program where he could earn an associate's degree along with his high school diploma. Liking the sound of the program, he enrolled in the inaugural P-TECH class as a freshman at Longmont's Skyline High School.

"I really loved working on computers, even before P-TECH," he said. "I was a hobbyist. P-TECH gave me a pathway."

He worked with an IBM mentor and interned at the company for six weeks as a junior. After graduating in 2020 with his high school diploma and the promised associate's degree in computer science from Front Range Community College, he was accepted to IBM's yearlong, paid apprenticeship program.

IBM hired him as a cybersecurity analyst once he completed the apprenticeship.

"P-TECH has given me a great advantage," he said. "Without it, I would have been questioning whether to go into college. Having a college degree at 18 is great to put on a resume."

Stanley Litow, a former vice president of IBM, developed the P-TECH, or Pathways in Technology Early College High Schools, model. The first P-TECH school opened 11 years ago in Brooklyn, New York, in partnership with IBM.

Litow's idea was to get more underrepresented young people into tech careers by giving them a direct path to college while in high school — and in turn create a pipeline of employees with the job skills businesses were starting to value over four-year college degrees.

The program, which includes mentors and internships provided by business partners, gives high school students up to six years to earn an associate's degree at no cost.

Skyline High a pioneer in program

In Colorado, St. Vrain Valley was among the first school districts chosen by the state to offer a P-TECH program after the Legislature passed a bill to provide funding — and the school district has embraced the program.

Colorado's first P-TECH programs started in the fall of 2016 at three high schools, including Skyline High. Over the last six years, 17 more Colorado high schools have adopted P-TECH, for at total of 20. Three of those are in St. Vrain Valley, with a fourth planned to open in the fall of 2023 at Longmont High School.

Each St. Vrain Valley high school offers a different focus supported by different industry partners.

Skyline partners with IBM, with students earning an associate's degree in Computer Information Systems from Front Range. Along with being the first, Skyline's program is the largest, enrolling up to 55 new freshmen each year.

Programs at the other schools are capped at 35 students per grade.

Frederick High's program, which started in the fall of 2019, has a bioscience focus, partners with Aims Community College and works with industry partners Agilent Technologies, Tolmar, KBI Biopharma, AGC Biologics and Corden Pharma.

Silver Creek High's program started a year ago with a cybersecurity focus. The Longmont school partners with Front Range and works with industry partners Seagate, Cisco, PEAK Resources and Comcast.

The new program coming to Longmont High will focus on business.

District leaders point to Skyline High's graduation statistics to illustrate the program's success. At Skyline, 100% of students in the first three P-TECH graduating classes earned a high school diploma in four years.

For the 2020 Skyline P-TECH graduates, 24 of the 33, or about 70%, also earned associate's degrees. For the 2021 graduating class, 30 of the 47 have associate's degrees — with one year left for those students to complete the college requirements.

For the most exact 2022 graduates, who have two years left to complete the college requirements, 19 of 59 have associate's degrees and another six are on track to earn their degrees by the end of the summer.

Jumping at an opportunity

Louise March, Skyline High's P-TECH counselor, keeps in touch with the graduates, saying 27 are working part time or full time at IBM. About a third are continuing their education at a four year college. Of the 19 who graduated in 2022 with an associate's degree, 17 are enrolling at a four year college, she said.

Two of those 2022 graduates are Anahi Sarmiento, who is headed to the University of Colorado Boulder's Leeds School of Business, and Jose Ivarra, who will study computer science at Colorado State University.

"I'm the oldest out of three siblings," Ivarra said. "When you hear that someone wants to provide you free college in high school, you take it. I jumped at the opportunity."

Sarmiento added that her parents, who are immigrants, are already working two jobs and don't have extra money for college costs.

"P-TECH is pushing me forward," she said. "I know my parents want me to have a better life, but I want them to have a better life, too. Going into high school, I kept that mentality that I would push myself to my full potential. It kept me motivated."

While the program requires hard work, the two graduates said, they still enjoyed high school and had outside interests. Ivarra was a varsity football player who was named player of the year. Sarmiento took advantage of multiple opportunities, from helping elementary students learn robotics to working at the district's Innovation Center.

Ivarra said he likes that P-TECH has the same high expectations for all students, no matter their backgrounds, and gives them support in any areas where they need help. Spanish is his first language and, while math came naturally, language arts was more challenging.

"It was tough for me to see all these classmates use all these big words, and I didn't know them," he said. "I just felt less. When I went into P-TECH, the teachers focus on you so much, checking on every single student."

They said it's OK to struggle or even fail. Ivarra said he failed a tough class during the pandemic, but was able to retake it and passed. Both credited March, their counselor, with providing unending support as they navigated high school and college classes.

"She's always there for you," Sarmiento said. "It's hard to be on top of everything. You have someone to go to."

Students also supported each other.

"You build bonds," Ivarra said. "You're all trying to figure out these classes. You grow together. It's a bunch of people who want to succeed. The people that surround you in P-TECH, they push you to be better."

Support systems are key

P-TECH has no entrance requirements or prerequisite classes. You don't need to be a top student, have taken advanced math or have a background in technology.

With students starting the rigorous program with a wide range of skills, teachers and counselors said, they quickly figured out the program needed stronger support systems.

March said freshmen in the first P-TECH class struggled that first semester, prompting the creation of a guided study class. The every other day, hour-and-a-half class includes both study time and time to learn workplace skills, including writing a resume and interviewing. Teachers also offer tutoring twice a week after school.

"The guided study has become crucial to the success of the program," March said.

Another way P-TECH provides extra support is through summer orientation programs for incoming freshmen.

At Skyline, ninth graders take a three-week bridge class — worth half a credit — that includes learning good study habits. They also meet IBM mentors and take a field trip to Front Range Community College.

"They get their college ID before they get their high school ID," March said.

During a session in June, 15 IBM mentors helped the students program a Sphero robot to travel along different track configurations. Kathleen Schuster, who has volunteered as an IBM mentor since the P-TECH program started here, said she wants to "return some of the favors I got when I was younger."

"Even this play stuff with the Spheros, it's teaching them teamwork and a little computing," she said. "Hopefully, through P-TECH, they will learn what it takes to work in a tech job."

Incoming Skyline freshman Blake Baker said he found a passion for programming at Trail Ridge Middle and saw P-TECH as a way to capitalize on that passion.

"I really love that they provide you options and a path," he said.

Trail Ridge classmate Itzel Pereyra, another programming enthusiast, heard about P-TECH from her older brother.

"It's really good for my future," she said. "It's an exciting moment, starting the program. It will just help you with everything."

While some of the incoming ninth graders shared dreams of technology careers, others see P-TECH as a good foundation to pursue other dreams.

Skyline incoming ninth grader Marisol Sanchez wants to become a traveling nurse, demonstrating technology and new skills to other nurses. She added that the summer orientation sessions are a good introduction, helping calm the nerves that accompany combining high school and college.

"There's a lot of team building," she said. "It's getting us all stronger together as a group and introducing everyone."

The spark of motivation

Silver Creek's June camp for incoming ninth graders included field trips to visit Cisco, Seagate, PEAK Resources, Comcast and Front Range Community College.

During the Front Range Community College field trip, the students heard from Front Range staff members before going on a scavenger hunt. Groups took photos to prove they completed tasks, snapping pictures of ceramic pieces near the art rooms, the most expensive tech product for sale in the bookstore and administrative offices across the street from the main building.

Emma Horton, an incoming freshman, took a cybersecurity class as a Flagstaff Academy eighth grader that hooked her on the idea of technology as a career.

"I'm really excited about the experience I will be getting in P-TECH," she said. "I've never been super motivated in school, but with something I'm really interested in, it becomes easier."

Deb Craven, dean of instruction at Front Range's Boulder County campus, promised the Silver Creek students that the college would support them. She also gave them some advice.

"You need to advocate and ask for help," she said. "These two things are going to help you the most. Be present, be engaged, work together and lean on each other."

Craven, who oversees Front Range's P-TECH program partnership, said Front Range leaders toured the original P-TECH program in New York along with St. Vrain and IBM leaders in preparation for bringing P-TECH here.

"Having IBM as a partner as we started the program was really helpful," she said.

When the program began, she said, freshmen took a more advanced technology class as their first college class. Now, she said, they start with a more fundamental class in the spring of their freshman year, learning how to build a computer.

"These guys have a chance to grow into the high school environment before we stick them in a college class," she said.

Summer opportunities aren't just for P-TECH's freshmen. Along with summer internships, the schools and community colleges offer summer classes.

Silver Creek incoming 10th graders, for example, could take a personal financial literacy class at Silver Creek in the mornings and an introduction to cybersecurity class at the Innovation Center in the afternoons in June.

Over at Skyline, incoming 10th graders in P-TECH are getting paid to teach STEM lessons to elementary students while earning high school credit. Students in the fifth or sixth year of the program also had the option of taking computer science and algebra classes at Front Range.

Embracing the challenge

And at Frederick, incoming juniors are taking an introduction to manufacturing class at the district's Career Elevation and Technology Center this month in preparation for an advanced manufacturing class they're taking in the fall.

"This will provide them a head start for the fall," said instructor Chester Clark.

Incoming Frederick junior Destini Johnson said she's not sure what she wants to do after high school, but believes the opportunities offered by P-TECH will prepare her for the future.

"I wanted to try something challenging, and getting a head start on college can only help," she said. "It's really incredible that I'm already halfway done with an associate's degree and high school."

IBM P-TECH program manager Tracy Knick, who has worked with the Skyline High program for three years, said it takes a strong commitment from all the partners — the school district, IBM and Front Range — to make the program work.

"It's not an easy model," she said. "When you say there are no entrance requirements, we all have to be OK with that and support the students to be successful."

IBM hosted 60 St. Vrain interns this summer, while two Skyline students work as IBM "co-ops" — a national program — to assist with the P-TECH program.

The company hosts two to four formal events for the students each year to work on professional and technical skills, while IBM mentors provide tutoring in algebra. During the pandemic, IBM also paid for subscriptions to tutor.com so students could get immediate help while taking online classes.

"We want to get them truly workforce ready," Knick said. "They're not IBM-only skills we're teaching. Even though they choose a pathway, they can really do anything."

As the program continues to expand in the district, she said, her wish is for more businesses to recognize the value of P-TECH.

"These students have had intensive training on professional skills," she said. "They have taken college classes enhanced with the same digital credentials that an IBM employee can learn. There should be a waiting list of employers for these really talented and skilled young professionals."

Killexams : CANADIAN UTILITIES REPORTS SECOND QUARTER 2022 EARNINGS

CALGARY, AB, July 28, 2022 /CNW/ - Canadian Utilities Limited (TSX: CU) (TSX: CU.X)

CU Q2 2022 (CNW Group/Canadian Utilities Limited)

Canadian Utilities Limited (Canadian Utilities or the Company) today announced second quarter 2022 adjusted earnings of $136 million ($0.51 per share), $21 million ($0.08 per share) higher compared to $115 million ($0.43 per share) in the second quarter of 2021.

Second quarter earnings attributable to equity owners of the Company reported in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS earnings) were $151 million ($0.50 per Class A and Class B share), $146 million ($0.54 per Class A and Class B share) higher compared to $5 million ($(0.04) per Class A and Class B share) in the second quarter of 2021.

IFRS earnings include timing adjustments related to rate-regulated activities, dividends on equity preferred shares of the Company, unrealized gains or losses on mark-to-market forward and swap commodity contracts, one-time gains and losses, impairments, and items that are not in the normal course of business or a result of day-to-day operations. These items are not included in adjusted earnings.

RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN THE SECOND QUARTER OF 2022

  • Invested $294 million in capital projects of which 83 per cent was invested in regulated utilities and 17 per cent mainly in Energy Infrastructure.

  • Announced an agreement with Canadian Pacific (CP) to provide engineering, procurement and construction services for two hydrogen production and refueling facilities in Calgary and Edmonton. The construction of these facilities will advance CP's innovative Hydrogen Locomotive Program, which has its sights set on building its first line-haul hydrogen-powered freight locomotive.

  • Released ATCO's 2021 Sustainability Report which highlights our progress and key achievements in energy transition, climate change and environmental stewardship, operational reliability and resilience, community and Indigenous relations, diversity, equity and inclusion, and safety.

  • On July 14, 2022, Canadian Utilities declared a third quarter dividend of 44.42 cents per share or $1.78 per Class A non-voting and Class B common share on an annualized basis.

(1)

In 2021, Canadian Utilities recorded impairments and other costs not in the normal course of business of $65 million (after-tax). The Company incurred $54 million of these costs in Mexico, related mainly to its Veracruz hydro facility within its Energy Infrastructure segment. The charge reflected an adverse arbitration decision, changes in market regulations, ongoing political uncertainty, and a challenging operating environment, resulting in an impairment of the carrying value of the assets. Other costs recorded were individually immaterial. 

(2)

The Company's retail electricity and natural gas business in Alberta enters into fixed-price swap commodity contracts to manage exposure to electricity and natural gas prices and volumes. These contracts are measured at fair value. Unrealized gains and losses due to changes in the fair value of the fixed-price swap commodity contracts are recognized in the earnings of the Corporate & Other segment. Realized gains or losses are recognized in adjusted earnings when the commodity contracts are settled.

(3)

The Company records significant timing adjustments as a result of the differences between rate-regulated accounting and International Financial Reporting Standards with respect to additional revenues billed in the current year, revenues to be billed in future years, regulatory decisions received, and settlement of regulatory decisions and other items.

(4)
