Start-Up CTEPrograms A Guide toPre-designed CTE Programs ofStudy March 15,2018
Welcome to Career and Technical Education –CTE We are excited that you have decided to explore how to start a CTE Program in your school ordistrict. Under the High School Graduation and College and Career Readiness Act of 2016, direct funding will be provided to Oregon school districts to increase high school graduationrates. Measure 98 identifies three specificareas: Establish or expand career and technical education programs in highschools, Establish or expand college-level educational opportunities for students inhigh schools,and Establish or expand dropout-prevention strategies in highschools.
