Two partnerships highlighted in news stories
Brandman University’s partnership with the Sacramento County Department of Education to provide a path to become teachers to current non-teaching employees and its partnership with Pechanga Resort and Casino were both highlighted in news stories during the university’s winter break.
A story in the Press-Enterprise in Riverside County looked at Pechanga employee Ron Olsen’s decision to pursue competency-based education through Brandman MyPath. “It’s a pretty unique program and it offers a lot more flexibility than traditional or even other online programs I’ve seen. It’s go at your own pace,” Olsen told reporter Fielding Buck.
The Sacramento Bee story focused on theCalifornia Classified School Employee Teacher Credentialing Program $20 million grant that provides educational opportunities to school district employees. “I think it’s tapping a potentially really strong pool of people. In our organization in the last six or seven years, we have had several people advance from being classified staff, and they have turned out to be very good teachers,” Sacramento County schools chief David Gordon told reporter Diana Lambert. Brandman has an exclusive contract to offer education courses at the county school district office.
