A Kind Reminder

The College Access Team would like to thank you for your dedication to student success. As we move into the second half of the academic year, we would like to remind everyone that participation in both the CVTE Implementation Committee and the Bristol CVTE Advisory Board is encouraged to facilitate our programming under the Perkins IV grant. We recognize that COVID-19 has impacted the way we gather for our meetings however, as we begin to transition into the next iteration of work life, we would like to formalize our meetings to ensure that we are remaining compliant with the conditions of the Perkins IV grant. In addition, Bristol is dedicated to strengthening our partnership with each of your districts, and your participation in these meetings allow us to learn about the needs of your students as well as, guides us in the programming and pathways we are able to develop for your student's benefit.

Articulation Agreement Renewals

Throughout the next few weeks, the Superintendent of your school or district will begin receiving DocuSign requests to renew Bristol's CVTE Articulations for your school.

There have been a few significant changes to the CVTE Articulation process, and I've highlighted the most important of those changes below.

  • The format of the Articulation has been streamlined to clarify the terms of the agreement between the two institutions to include a Purpose, Guiding Principles, General Requirements and Ongoing Collaboration.
  • The timeframe for the renewal has been removed with the caveat that a new agreement would be required in the event there is a significant curriculum change in either the secondary partner's Chapter 74 program or Bristol's program.

These changes are intended to streamline the articulation process as well as, improve transparency of information across both institutions. Thank you in advance for your help with the renewal of these Articulations. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to Nikita at
