The State Plan for Career and Technical Education 2000-2004 was developed as a guide to assist
school districts in their efforts to offer effective,
career and technical education programs that prepare
students for further education and eventual employment.
The plan is based on the premise that a rigorous academic
foundation contributes to success in school and life,
that all students should be provided equal opportunities
to succeed, and that career and technical education
should complement and enhance academic preparation by
enabling students to apply principles to a variety of
community and career situations.

the student's education at the post secondary level.

CTE Program Campus Effectiveness Audit & Program Evaluation
This program offers a campus-based CTE program audit. The purpose of the audit is to provide campus and district personnel a viable picture of their CTE program. The audit will be based on a set of instructional standards for CTE programs and compliance standards. It will provide the district with a written report describing findings, commendations, and recommendations for the CTE program. Data collected for the report may include but is not limited to: AEIS-IT and PBMAS data, teacher and student interviews, CTE facility and
equipment reviews, classroom/laboratory observations, and fiscal requirements. The audit will provide valuable information to be used for program planning and program improvement, and will also provide a process the school can use annually to monitor and review progress.
