governor ritter s colorado promise
Governor Ritter’s “Colorado Promise”

Identifies two clear goals:

  • Cut by half the number of high school students who fail to graduate.
  • Double the number of Certificates and Degrees awarded over the next 10-15 years.

Bridges to Opportunity
  • CCCS proposes that the state embrace a new initiative: the Bridges to Opportunity through Career Pathways initiative.
  • The renewal of education as a public good is intrinsic in the initiative.
  • Partnership among providers of education from pre-school to graduate school (P-20) as well as partnership between education, workforce councils and business and industry is a key factor for success.
  • Finally, the strategic deployment of the state’s resources on this initiative is critical.

career clusters and career pathways
Career Clusters and Career Pathways

An organizing tool defining CTE using broad clusters of occupations and pathways with validated standards that ensure opportunities for all students regardless of their career goals and interests.“

colorado career clusters
Colorado Career Clusters

A framework within six CTE Industry Sectors:

  • Agricultural and Natural Resources
  • STEM, Arts, Design and Informational Technology
  • Skilled Trades and Technical Sciences
  • Health Sciences and Public Safety
  • Hospitality, Human Services and Education &Training and
  • Business and Public Administration

Strategy #1: CTE Plans of Study

  • A visual that links high school academic courses, CTE courses, CTE postsecondary programs and careers;
  • Coherent and rigorous content aligned to standards -- coordinated, non-duplicated courses;
  • Shows articulation opportunities for postsecondary education credits;
  • Organized by Career Pathways within Career Clusters
what is a cte plan of study
What Is A CTE Plan Of Study
  • A “road map” to Students’ career goals
  • Flexible, allowing students to explore and update their plans
  • A student planning tool that defines career opportunities
  • A student retention strategy
  • A career counseling/advising tool
  • A visual demonstration of the progression of learning
  • A means to empower students to take responsibility for career planning
strategy 2 accountability
Strategy #2: Accountability

Measuring results of CTE student achievement:

  • Academic and skill attainment
    • 10th grade CSAP results; reading/math
    • Technical assessments
  • Student retention and CTE program completion
    • High school completion & Graduation rates
    • Secondary CTE program completion rates
    • Postsecondary Certificates/Degrees Granted rates
  • Student transitions upon program completion
    • Employment, military, advanced education
State established targets based on benchmarks

Local Recipients agree to State targets or negotiate targets (per designated procedure)

CCCS disseminates annual Performance Metrics, disaggregated by U.S. Dept. of Ed. designated sub-populations per recipient

Local Plan Objectives based on Performance Metrics and additional improvement plans if miss target(s)

Performance Metrics


Strategy #3: Project-Based Focus

Requirements for Local Activities:

Meeting Performance Targets:

  • Local Plan Projects, one per Performance Metric
  • Performance target is project objective
  • Local Improvement plan if target missed
  • Performance Target Negotiations
Requirements for Local Uses of Funds:

Improving Programs:

Local Plan projects aligned to:

Local long-term and short-term strategic plans

State CTE strategic plan

Requirements of Perkins

Active involvement by stakeholders

Web-enabled submittal of Local Plan

One Plan of Study

Strategic Deployment of Funds


Strategy #4: Technical Assessments

  • Aligned with industry-recognized standards, if available
  • Valid and reliable
  • Difficulty in obtaining the data of industry-based assessments
  • Limits to availability and affordability of other valid and reliable assessments
CCCS research, training, development about content, instruction, assessment

Capacity building with CTE teachers about content, instruction, assessment

Piloting developed assessments

Analysis of pilots

Readjustments based on pilot analysis

Implementation of content, instruction, assessments aligned with industry standards

Technical Assessment Phases


Strategy #5: Academic Integration

►Rigorous and challenging

►Identify inherent academic content and teach through applied lessons

►Math in CTE Research project

►Full integration of academic course content and CTE content, allowing academic credit for CTE course


Steps Toward Academic Integration

Create crosswalks of academic standards resident in CTE curriculum

Prioritize academic standards

Create clear processes for how to integrate academic content in CTE courses

Provide professional development on these processes

Share model lesson plans for academic integration


Strategy #6: Expand Teacher Corps

Professional Development:

  • State Leadership funded professional development must be:
    • High quality, Sustained
    • Intensive, Classroom-focused


  • State and Locals must address recruitment and retention of teachers, administrators and counselors
State-wide, Secondary/Postsecondary, Master-teachers & administrators working group develop professional growth model

Help support Personal Professional Growth Plans

Help support “Communities of Practice” learning cohorts

Professional Development:



  • CTE credentials now issued by Pathway

(not program area) -- web site:

  • Explore options regarding teacher preparation programs
  • Partnerships and dialogue

Strategy #7: Special Populations

  • Definition
  • Must ensure:
    • Equal access to programs;
    • Non-discriminatory practices;
    • Provide programs to overcome barriers
Communities of Practice focus

Share best practices

Focus on the student:

More focused planning per needs

Continue full range of supplemental services

Continue Individual Education Programs including CTE needs and transition support

Recipients indicate specific strategies in Perkins Local Plans

CTE Program standards includes accessibility assurances that are reviewed

Support Strategies


Strategy #8: Employer/Workforce Connections

  • Lifetime knowledge & skills to keep America competitive
  • High-skill, High-wage, High-demand

Strategy #8: Employer/Workforce Connections

CCCS “Discipline Teams” to review program content

State advisory councils, focus groups

Approved CTE programs must have local business/industry advisory committees

Collaboration with trade/professional organizations

Explore viable workforce data system options


Summary: Perkins implementation is an important key to student success and to building a skilled and competitive workforce!

“I want more of our students to consider college and post-high school training as viable options after graduation – and I want them to be fully prepared for those opportunities.”

-- Colorado Governor Bill Ritter
