  • 3. Welcome to NAF Next 2014 Dear Colleagues, Welcome to NAF Next 2014: Roadmap to Impact! And what an impact you have made this year! In this 2013-14 school year, NAF served over 70,000 students, which was a 13% increase over last school year. The opportunity to reach so many students and know the impact the academy experience has on their lives is both exciting and humbling. It is also critical. College and career readiness is very much at the forefront of the national conversation about our nation’s economy and its recovery. The narrative that today’s graduates are not prepared for what is next is not going away. In fact, there is increasing focus on the growing paradox in this country: persistent, high levels of unemployment on the one hand, and large numbers of unfilled jobs on the other. It is becoming increasingly evident that the problem is not an employment problem, but an education problem. In the US, job forecasts indicate that upwards of 65% of all future employment opportunities will require some post-secondary education, be it a 4-year degree, Master’s degree or technical or job specific training. But we still live in a country where every 26 seconds, a high school student drops out. As a network, you are all addressing this staggering issue. NAF’s goal to graduate 100,000 college and career-ready students by 2020 is aligned with President Obama’s goal to have the largest proportion of college graduates in that same year. I know that together we can do this. I have seen how the push over this past year to provide 100% of NAF students with internships has caused you as a network network to truly harness the power of business and community partnerships and I know this will continue. The attention to internships has not taken away any of your focus on quality. In our strategic plan, we set out on what we thought was an incredibly ambitious objective: to have 75% of NAF academies at the Certified or above level by 2016. Well, no one should ever underestimate the power of this network! This year, two years ahead of our goal, 76% of academies were Certified or above! You also added 12 new academies to the Distinguished group for a total of 22 Distinguished Academies. You are reaching more students and doing so at the highest quality. As a network, we have covered a lot of road and we still have a ways to go. This year’s conference is one of our most powerful yet in helping us get there. I am thrilled to tease you with the fact that there are new initiatives being unveiled here that will change the game for college and career readiness. The difficult part for everyone is going to be the transfer from the national level to the local level. This will require a lot of hard work and dedicated leadership from every member of the network. But do not forget, you have this national network of peers to help you do just that. Take every opportunity to leverage that over the next four days and throughout the year. Every year when we come together at this conference, I am amazed by the strength of our shared commitment and passion. Together we will continue down the road to impacting the lives of students and improving their outcomes. Thank you for everything you do to make it possible. @NAFCareerAcads www.facebook.com/NationalAcademyFoundation Join the National Academy Foundation group on LinkedIn 1 JD Hoye President NAF Board of Directors Sanford I.

  • 12. CONGRATULATIONS DISTINGUISHED NAF ACADEMIES Twenty-two academies in the NAF network have reached Distinguished status based on the annual academy assessment. Ten of these academies have reached this status more than once and twelve are new to the roster. This designation is given to those that have exhibited exceptional fidelity to an educational model that prepares students for success in college and careers. Additionally, over 100 academies reached Model status and are being recognized for delivering a very high quality program for young people. NAF’s annual assessment measures an academy’s strengths and challenges in implementing NAF’s results-driven model. The assessment is designed to help all academies assess their progress and increase their alignment to NAF’s standards, reflecting national standards developed by researchers and members from similar career/pathway organizations. Research shows that students in NAF academies achieve better results than those in the same school district who are not in NAF academies and that academies at the Distinguished and Model levels realize even greater student outcomes.

  • 28. ABOUT THE LEARNING SEMINARS The learning seminars at NAF Next 2014 have been carefully designed to ensure all participants can attend sessions that meet their needs and fit their interests.

Expectations NAF provides learning seminars with information, tools and resources to allow participants to move their academies towards higher quality. Learning seminars are carefully designed to consider participants’ expertise levels and industry theme and they provide relevant content across the model and the standards. Participants will leave NAF Next with a better understanding of how to align their work to the NAF model and standards. Certificate of Attendance All learning seminars feature rich and engaging content led by experienced instructors, and participants can obtain hours of participation through a certificate of attendance. In order to receive the certificate, participants must submit learning seminar evaluations for each session for which they wish to gain credit. Evaluations Learning Seminar evaluations provide NAF with important data about the types of sessions that offer the best tools and resources for participants as well as proof of attendance. These evaluations help determine how well each session delivers value by: œœ Providing relevant and rich content based on the NAF model and standards œœ Offering clear strategies on how to implement academy improvements œœ Showcasing tools and resources that align with academy needs œœ Increasing understanding of the topic area œœ Providing opportunities to ask questions and interact with colleagues œœ Ensuring a well-prepared and qualified speaker leads the session Evaluation forms will be provided in each room at the conclusion of the session. Attendees should place their participant ID stickers on the form, fill out the evaluation and turn in forms to NAF staff as they leave the session.
