Purpose of the


  • An online survey of recent high school CTE graduates for the 2012-2013 school year

  • Required to meet federal and state regulations

  • Allows VDOE and school divisions to evaluate their CTE programs

CTE Completer

A CTE completer is a student who has met the

requirements for a CTE concentration (sequence) and all

requirements for high school graduation, or an approved alternative education program.

CTE Concentration

A CTE concentration is a coherent sequence of courses as identified in the course listings within the CTE Administrative Planning Guide (APG).


Division Annual Performance Report

(5S1) Secondary Placement (Transition) Rate– CTE completers (based on CTE serving school division) will successfully transition from secondary school to employment, military, further education, or full-time equivalency of part-time combinations of transition indicators.

Performance Standard: 5S1 Secondary Transition Rate = 90%



Completer Survey Response Rate

Performance Standard: 5S1 Completer Response Rate = 75%
