The Path to Higher Ed: Building College and Career Readiness
Kathy Gomez, Defining Student Outcomes
In this episode, we speak to Kathy Gomez, the Superintendent of Evergreen School District in San Jose, California. She discusses her district’s push to use technology to increase rigor and optimize student learning experiences. Using a framework called “Defining Student Outcomes,” ESD is actively redefining the expectations for student learning to align with current shifts in the area of college and career readiness. She is also approaching her work through the lens of her migrant students as demonstrated by the district’s pilot program to provide them with laptops they can use at home.
