Data, Accountability, & Advocacy Workshop May 8, 2014
National Perspective on CTE Funding for CTE –Perkins Funds are not increasing –Competitive grants Perkins Reauthorization – –On-going discussions –Hard to predict when reauthorization will occur
CTE in Wisconsin Elevating the Importance of CTE –CTE Month Advocacy –Business/Education Partnerships –Using CTEERS Data to promote CTE State Funding Opportunities –CTE Incentive Grants (DPI) –Fast Forward Grants (DWD) –WTCS Career Pathways (WTCS)
Accountability Composite Enrollment Report – Due July 15 –Information on all Juniors and Seniors Graduate Follow-up Report – May 1 following year The information from the above reports are used to create: –CTEERS Basic Facts –District Profile –CTE Advocacy Resources
CTE Concentrators Universe of Students 11 th 12 th 13 th CTE Participants CTE Concentrators
Definition of a CTE Concentrator 1.A student that has completed at least 3 CTE courses within their chosen pathway throughout their secondary education experience. OR 2. A student that has successfully completed a minimum of 2 CTE courses within their chosen pathway and is enrolled in a third CTE course during the reporting year.
CTE Concentrator Completer is… A student that has completed at least 3 CTE courses in their chosen pathway and has graduated.
Concentrator vs. Dabbler The three CTE courses should align within a career pathway Don’t get hung up on the word “chosen pathway” There are no Perkins penalties for students concentrating in one area and pursuing career paths in other areas following graduation.
Performance Indicators Non Traditional Participation –Wisconsin missed this performance indicator –Target: 25% participation in NTO areas by under-represented gender See Worksheet
CTSO Non-Regulatory Guidance Non-Regulatory Guidance issued in May, 2009 Question and Answers Regarding the Implementation of Carl D. Perkins Act of Question D.26 & D. 27 focus on CTSO expenditures
CTSO Non-Regulatory Guidance Can Perkins be used for student travel, lodging, meals to CTSO Technical Skill competitions? No – except in limited circumstances –Integral part of the curriculum (all students in CTE benefit) –Direct assistance to students who are members of special populations
2013 Act 63 Graduation Requirements Increase in Mathematics and Science requirements from 2 credits to 3 credits Begins in school year Provides options for students to earn science & mathematics credits through CTE and math credit for certain computer science courses.
2013 Act 63 Science Requirements School board shall award a pupil up to one science credit for successfully completing in the high school grades a CTE course that the school board determines satisfies a science requirement. Schools may not award science credit and mathematics credit for the same CTE course.
2013 Act 63 Mathematics Requirements School board shall award a pupil up to one mathematics credit for successfully completing in the high school grades a CTE course that the school board determines satisfies a mathematics requirement. Schools may not award mathematics credit and science credit for the same course.
2013 Act 63 Mathematics Requirements School board shall award a pupil up to one mathematics credit for successfully completing in the high school grades a computer sciences course that DPI has determines qualifies as a computer sciences course. DPI is still determining what courses will qualify as a computer science course.
2013 Act 63 Guidance will be coming from DPI regarding Act 63 DPI encourages school districts to utilize the already established “equivalency” process (PI 18.02)
CTE Teacher Licensing Pathways Wisconsin faces a shortage of CTE teachers. Wisconsin also offers multiple pathways to meet the requirements to become a Wisconsin licensed CTE teacher.
Licensed Based on Equivalency Candidate Profile –Bachelor's degree –Out-of-state alternative route completers –3 years of teaching experience in PK-12, postsecondary, and/ or industry –Private school teacher
Trade Specialist Permit Candidate Profile –Completed an apprenticeship program –Three additional years of occupational experience in a particular trade area –Seeking to fill a school district need in a specific trade area
Professional Teaching Permits Candidate Profile –Professional with a Bachelors degree from a regionally accredited institution of higher education in one of these areas: Engineering, Mathematics, Science, Computer Science, Art, Music, or World Languages. –5 years of experience as a professional in the subject area in which the bachelor’s degree was awarded –Seeking a permit to teach in a Wisconsin school district in one of these shortage areas

2013 Act 59 CTE Industry Certifications Incentive Grants Promotes career and technical education (CTE) programming which results in an industry-recognized certification designed to mitigate workforce shortages in specific industries or occupations
2013 Act 59 CTE Industry Certifications DPI is required to: –annually confer with DWD and WTCS to identify industries and occupations that face workforce shortages –Annually notify school districts of the occupations and industries facing shortages –Approve industry recognized certification programs designed to mitigate those workforce shortages
School District Eligibility Only certifications on the approved 2014 CTE Incentive Grant Certification List are eligible to receive funding for Class of 2014 graduates. Students must have earned high school diploma Funding is limited to $1000 per pupil regardless of the number certifications the student has earned on the approved list.
Industry Certification List State of Wisconsin Workbased Learning Programs Industry Recognized Certifications “Embedded” Career Pathway Certificates
Claiming the Funds Determine list of certifications earned by class of 2014 high school graduates Compare certifications earned to the approved 2014 CTE Incentive Grant Certification List –NOTE: Certifications MUST be completed by August 31, 2014 to claim funds for this fiscal year.
Claiming the Funds Obtain and store a copy of documentation verifying successful certification completion for each student that will be part of the grant claim. –NOTE: DPI will conduct sample audits of documentation confirming successful certification completion. Complete Electronic DPI Form (will be on DPI Website)
