16STUDENT OBJECTIVEThe student ‘objective’ indicates whether a student is included in accountability reporting or not. If a student meets the definition of a preparatory student, the value in the ‘student objective’ field must be changed to ‘preparatory’. There are no exceptions.Students whose objective is ‘exploring’ are included in enrollment/participation reports but not included in accountability reports, except for the Perkins nontraditional participation measurement and College and Career Readiness measurement.
17Exploring students:New students must be enrolled in at least one technical education course to be entered into the TEDS database.New students are entered with ‘exploring’ in the student objective field and changed to ‘preparatory’ when they meet the requirements.
18Exploring students:If student is enrolled in an exploratory program the student objective is automatically ‘exploring’.Student has less than 3 technical credit hours in a preparatory program/career major (secondary).Student is not included in Perkins IV performance measure calculations (except for nontraditional participation)Student is included in College and Career Readiness measurement
19Preparatory students: Any student who has enrolled in CTE courses and hassuccessfully completed 3 or more technical credit hours inthe same program/career majorThe number of technical credit hours is cumulative for the time the student has been enrolled in that technical program.Technical credit hours may be earned during different school years and be counted in the cumulative number of hours for that program.
20When To Enroll A Secondary Student: Secondary students should be entered intoTEDS when the student has enrolled in thefirst course in the technical educationprogram. The student will be enrolled by theschool offering the program in which thestudent is enrolled.
