Woodlake High School is introducing its students to a two-year Aviation Pathway, which caters to grades 10 through 12. Currently, 76% of students at Woodlake High School do not meet the math standards on the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress — a problem that has been further exacerbated by distance learning throughout the coronavirus pandemic. The Aviation Pathway addresses the need for remedial math education by providing students the opportunity to retake certain courses during summer school for credit recovery and allowing them to qualify for the pathway’s Math for Aviation course.
Through Woodlake’s program, students will complete two years of aviation coursework to earn a recognized industry certificate, a-g college credit, and a California Career and Technical Education pathway completion. For their industry credentials, students will have the opportunity to become OSHA 10 certified and receive an aviation certificate, such as a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) drone operator license. Students will also complete a two-year Math for Aviation program that earns a-g college preparatory credit with the University of California System and satisfies a California Career and Technical Education pathway.
With Phase 2 underway, Woodlake is introducing its students to its online aviation program, allowing them to learn in-demand, transferable math and physics skills. At school, students are applying that knowledge through flight simulator, mechanical, and safety demonstrations. Woodlake is also establishing dual-credit college preparatory classes by partnering with Reedley College.
