All five required courses for the Business Entrepreneurship and Management Pathway (52.0799) are available for review. Business Essentials (12050), Business Management (12052), Entrepreneurship (12053), Business Economics (12105) and Applied Business Development (12099) can be found at http://www.ksde.org/Default.aspx?tabid=3183. You will find these "DRAFTS" under the heading "Business, Management & Administration Documents."
Competencies reflect standards from National Career Clusters, National Content Standards for Entrepreneurship Education, National Business Education Association and The Council for Economic Education. In addition, these courses represent a collaboration of effort and feedback from secondary, post-secondary and industry representatives. I'm very pleased and proud of the hard work and commitment by these volunteers. I thank them all!
Please share these available documents with your colleagues. Feedback is important. They will be submitted for KACCTE approval on Nov. 17, 2010. I will be collecting comments until Friday, Nov. 12, 2010. E-mail your questions and comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks again for your patience.
