Regarding your Community question about micro credentials for students, you're timing is very good. EdTA is beginning the process of creating CTE micro credentials in collaboration with another national organization. I can't tell you a lot about it as we are still working out the details. What I can tell you is that the micros will include multiple technical theatre pathways (ie. Lighting , Costumes, etc) in which students will have the opportunity to demonstrate their competency through skill tests. As such tests take a long time to create and field test we are at least a few years away from this becoming a reality.
Look for additional information after the first of the year.
