What is it that CTE does?

1. Creates opportunities for deeper learning and engagement (rigor)
2. Provides a context for learning both within and
outside the classroom to motivate students (relevance)
3. Allows time for teachers to get to know students
and for students to develop relationships with
employers (relationships)
4. Encourages to students to make and accept mistakes and recognize
them as learning opportunities (grit)
5. Develop a general set of skills necessary for future success - they will
change careers 5 or 6 times in their lives - the last 4 jobs might not even be created yet.
Federal Perkins Grants
Creating educational equity amongst like programs around the state.
Ensuring academic rigor in CTE programs.
Creating CTE funding model that ensures all students have access to technical education.
Supporting adoption of high standards that reflect 21st century educational and industry needs.
Implementation of career clusters model and gender equity training in support of PLP implementation.
