The first Statewide Articulation Agreement in the academic discipline of Drafting was established and approved in the fall of 2011. Now, the 15 Massachusetts Community Colleges and Chapter 74 approved Secondary Career/Vocational Technical High Schools across the Commonwealth, working as part of a statewide articulation taskforce have established agreements in six additional fields bringing the grand total to seven agreements.
- Drafting Agreement & Crosswalk
- Manufacturing/Engineering and Technology
- Hospitality and Tourism
- Arts and Communication
- Information Technology
- Early Childhood Education
Following the path of the creation of the Drafting agreement, a Statewide Articulation Taskforce comprised of; faculty and administration from the community colleges, Chapter 74 approved Secondary Career/Vocational Technical High Schools, the Massachusetts Community Colleges Executive Office (MCCEO), the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, and the Massachusetts Association of Vocational Administrators (MAVA) was formed.
In a uniform and consistent way, this collaboration allows for Chapter 74 Vocational High School students to enroll at any community college and be awarded credits for work completed at the vocational high school level. It also supports a seamless continuum of education for students while streamlining the agreement process.
