•
•
force, and earn 8-9% more than graduates of Academic
Programs. Reported by the 2001 Russell Sage Foundation Study
CTE student’s College Attendance increased by 32%
between 1982-92 (NAVE )
96.6% of all high school students take at least 1 CTE course
78% of all jobs between 2004-14 will require some type of
post-secondary training
The Research…
• Well designed CTE programs lead to impressive results:
Study of Career Academies in San Francisco (compare CTE
Students with Non-Academy Students)
– GPA .5 of a point Higher
– Test scores are 30-40% Higher
– Drop-out rate is 50% lower
– 8.2% more go to 2 to 4 year colleges
– 15.9% more go to 4 year colleges
• CTE Concentrators: 44.5% become first time freshman (CATE)
• Non-CTE Concentrators: 22.2% become first time freshman
(CATE)
• 56% of Students who are CTE Concentrators receive TOPS
(CATE)
• 14.5% of Non-CTE Concentrators receive TOPS (CATE)
Educational pedagogy which combines the three R’s
• Rigorous- curriculum across all program areas
• Relevant- making content meaningful and applicable to all
students
• Relationship-building through direct ties to business, industry,
and the community through activities and Career and
Technical Student Organizations (CTSOs)
CTE Area of Concentration
• 16 National Career Clusters w/ 70 Areas of Concentration (AOC) within these
clusters
• Requirements to complete an AOC
• 4 credits from the list of Primary Courses
–
NOTE: At least one credit must be labeled as a competency course
• 2 credits from the list of Related Courses, one of which must be a computer
