Career & Technical Education and STEM Initiatives

Delaware is at the forefront of educational reform in the United States and uniquely positioned to be a model for the nation. The Delaware Department of Education is committed to serving every student and ensuring that all children are career and college ready. This expectation has shaped extensive school reform, including the alignment of academic and technical instruction within a comprehensive model of Career and Technical Education (CTE) that reflects the needs of our economy and creates a systemic process for career preparation.

Delaware WBL Framework Draft

To ensure Delaware's vision for work-based learning (WBL) is reflective of student and employer needs, the Department of Education convened school system leaders, post-secondary partners, state agencies, and employers to review exemplary WBL models across the country. These best practices have shaped the guiding principles which will be used to develop Delaware's WBL policy and procedures.

Feedback is requested through the following survey which will be used to identify critical needs aligned with the WBL framework. Survey input is requested by October 21, 2016 and will shape the resource development/procedures needed to expand WBL opportunities across the state.

CTE Programs of Study

Applications for state-model and local CTE programs of study are due by November 30, 2016 for implementation in the 2017-18 school year and the estimated notification of approval is January 15, 2017

State-Model CTE Programs of Study

The DDOE has developed a series of state-model CTE programs of study that are available for LEA consideration and adoption. Each state-model CTE program of study is mapped to a demand driven occupation, opportunities for students to earn college credit and an industry recognized credential, support for school administrators and counselors, and course specific professional learning opportunities for teachers.

Innovation Grant

The Innovation Grant provides targeted funding for LEAs to adopt or enhance state-model CTE programs of study and provide academic and/or career support services to CTE students. Grant proposals are due on October 15, 2016 and estimated notification of award is November 1, 2016

CTE Fiscal and Accountability Guidelines

The DDOE has developed policies and procedures to more clearly define fiscal and accountability routines related to Career & Technical Education (CTE). This work provides greater clarity for LEAs to develop, implement and improve CTE programs of study.
