CTE Updates

  • Applications for state-model and local CTE programs of study are due by November 30, 2017 for implementation in the 2017-18 school year and the estimated notification of approval is January 15, 2018.

    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 13, 2017 and estimated notification of award is November 1, 2017.

    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. 

    CTE Monitoring Tools

    The monitoring form, sample interview questions, and draft agenda are provided to local recipients to help facilitate the monitoring process and support the continuous improvement of CTE programs of study in conjunction with the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Improvement Act of 2006 P. L. 109-270 [Section 134(b)(5)] and 14 Delaware Admin Code 525.

    DPAS II - Component V, Measure C Guidelines for CTE Teachers

    The DPAS II Guide for Teachers and DPAS II Measure C Growth Goals framework were developed by educators and vetted by the Delaware Department of Education (DDOE) and school system leaders to address specific content areas and teacher job assignments.  This document outlines the guiding principles and common framework that will inform Career and Technical Education (CTE) Measure C Growth Goals.
