Connecting Activities (CA) is a Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (ESE) initiative that leverages a statewide infrastructure to support "college and career readiness" for all students.
The CA line item in the state budget establishes public-private partnerships through the sixteen local workforce investment boards (WIBs) to connect schools and businesses. These partners provide structured work-based learning and career development experiences for students that support academic and employability skill attainment.
