CTE: Learning that
Works for America
• The TEA envisions a comprehensive plan of action for
Career and Technical Education (CTE) that acknowledges
the fact that the state is facing a time of great demographic
and economic change. The public education systems must
take immediate action by addressing the following
• Recognize the unique needs of a diverse student population;
• Prepare students for college and career success;
• Provide students with a quality education that prepares them to
be competitive within a global economy; and
• Recruit and retain qualified teachers.

CTE and Academics:
Accountability Measures
• Thus, CTE teachers share responsibility for the academic
achievement of CTE students and take responsibility to
strengthen academic integration activities, based on
performance data generated by the accountability system.
• School districts are required to analyze performance data,
research effective integration strategies and develop a plan
to improve the academic performance of its CTE students.
A lot of the accountability
information is based on CTE
Student Indicator Codes 2 or 3
Back to School 2013
• As soon as a CTE student enrolls in a CTE course that is part
of a sequence of courses, the accountability system
identifies the student as a CTE student.

• Career and Technical Education (CTE) Indicators (1 – 9)
• Who are the students that make up our class rosters?
• Our Career and Technical Student Organizations?
• Who is addressed on grant forms such as the Perkins and
the end of year Perkins PER?
• What group of students’ performance on academic success
and other accountable measures are reported within
• Do CTE teachers actively participate in academic, special
education, postsecondary discussions that can affect the
students served in their programs?
• CTE teachers assist in preparing all students for high skill,
high wage, and high demand careers!
Big Picture!

Demographics found in CTE
• individuals with disabilities;
• individuals from economically disadvantaged families,
including foster children;
• individuals preparing for non-traditional fields;
• single parents, including single pregnant women;
• displaced homemakers; and
• individuals with limited English proficiency.
Back to School 2013
Special Populations
• Teach students language and strategies when they don’t
know what to say.
• Encourage students to speak in complete sentences.
• Randomize and rotate who is called on so students of all
language levels can participate.
• Use response signals for students to monitor their own
• Use visuals and a focus on vocabulary to build background.
• Have students participate in structured reading activities.
• Have students participate in structured conversation and
writing activities.

LEP Students – Strategies
What are Nontraditional Fields?
• Nontraditional courses are defined as occupations or fields of work,
including careers in computer science, technology, and other
emerging high skill occupations, for which individuals from one
gender comprise less than 25 percent of the individuals employed in
each such occupation or field of work.
• The courses were selected because, for the most part, they are
occupationally specific courses in which the enrollment of one gender
falls below 25 percent.
• Gender enrollments in the courses are reviewed annually at the state
and local levels as part of the Carl D. Perkins reporting process.
• List on TEA website (2005)
• A more current list in the 2013 PBMAS Manual pg. 91
• Listed by gender and include PEIMS number and course name
Back to School 2013
• The federal Carl D. Perkins law requires states to measure
participation in nontraditional courses.
• Core Indicators on Nontraditional CTE
• Participation in CTE programs preparing students for
nontraditional fields
• Completion of CTE programs preparing students for
nontraditional fields
