BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - New York is in line for more so-called P-TECH schools that allow students to graduate with a high school diploma and associate degree, as well as a chance to work for a participating company.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Wednesday announced 10 winners of the second round of funding through the state Pathways in Technology Early College High School partnerships.

The public-private partnerships are modeled after New York City program that was born out of cooperation among the city’s Department of Education, the City University of New York and IBM. Students in the six-year school are assigned corporate mentors and have inside tracks to jobs at IBM.

The 10 new P-TECH partnerships are spread throughout the state.
