CTE Programs: Moving to Pathways with Courses
A Pathway Must: 1.Be associated with sector(s) within an industry or encompass a function that crosses industry sectors. 2.The scope of a pathway may be influenced by size and number of opportunities in the related industry and available college programs. 3.Provide opportunities to prepare for a range of careers. a.multiple employment opportunities after high school. b.opportunities for students to enter and succeed in postsecondary and continuing education programs. 4.Prepare students to transfer skills required for employment in the range of occupations aligned to the pathway. 5.Be structured so that students have the opportunity to learn skills across the pathway as well as in specialized areas.
A Career Pathway Structure
FY14- New Standards, Courses & Tests
Structure of NEW CTE Content Standards
Format of the NEW Design Technical Content Standards Course & Unit Descriptions Strand: Strands are large content areas under which multiple outcomes are organized. »Includes a concise description that captures multiple, broad areas of learner knowledge and skills expected across the strand and, to the extent possible, the multiple outcomes under the strand. Outcome: »Outcomes are overreaching statements that summarizes the knowledge and skills described in the overall set of individual competencies that follow. Competency: essential knowledge or skill »Competencies are specific statements of essential knowledge or skill to be learned in the components of the pathway program.

Using Content Standards: Building a Course of Study Content Standards Sample Course Outlines Program of Study
Highlights of Assessment Features All pathways will have a test. Pathway tests are comprised of end of course (EOC) exams. Any combination of EOC tests can be used to calculate a total test score. Seniors will have same FY13 tests available students should begin taking new end of course tests. Pretest development underway. Recognition for student achievement.
Support Transcripted Credit Transfer
Role of Industry Credentials To what extent are we… Chasing Credentials vs. Buying into industry credentials that have value to businesses in our communities? Industry credential attainment will be reported on Local District Report card and the CTE report card. --Criteria will be forthcoming. “Credentials are relevant to employers only to the extent that it leads to more productive employees.”

CTE- 26 Process Identify Program Type –New program; Renewal of Existing; Middle Alignment POS –Post-Secondary; Secondary CTE-26 Assurance Page Timeline for Submitting
CTE-26 Approval Process Electronically submitted to ODE Receipt notice sent to district contact, Tech Prep Regional Center CA’s and career field consultants within two days Paper applications still accepted although prefer scanned documents
CTE-26 Approval Process Career field consultants work with districts to verify intent, correct errors and make modifications 60 day timeframe for consultants to approve, not approve or withdraw applications Approval letters sent via to district contact and Tech Prep Regional Center CA’s within 2 days of approval
Approval of New CTE Programming The budget specifies that a city, local or exempted village school district, community school, or STEM school that wishes to offer CTE programming must first seek approval of the lead district in the career technical planning district (CTPD). The intention is to increase student access to valuable CTE programs while maintaining a coordinated delivery of services
Approval of CTE Programming for FY15 The lead district’s decision to approve or disapprove shall include but is not limited to: A. Demand for the CTE program in industries in the state B.Quality of the program C.Attainment for industry credentials or PS education D.Admission requirements of lead district E.Past performance of the district or school F.Traveling distance G.Sustainability H.Capacity I.Availability of the program within the CTPD J.The cost to begin the program
The following timelines will govern the program application process. Approval is valid for five years following the fiscal year in which the program was approved. March 1st.Lead districts must approve or disapprove CTE programming applications no later than March 1st. March 15Appeals may be made to the department not later than March 15. May 15.The department will notify the district or school and the lead district of its decision to approve or disapprove by May 15.
CTE Renewal Timelines
FY14= 2013–2014 School Yr.FY15= 2014–2015 School Yr.FY16= 2015–2016 School Yr.FY17= 2016–2017 School Yr.FY18= 2017–2018 School Yr.
Program Renewal As stated in Ohio’s Perkins IV Five-Year Plan, all state-approved secondary career-technical programs are to be renewed on a 5 year cycle. Information Technology, Engineering and Manufacturing TechnologiesFor this year we are asking that all Information Technology, Engineering and Manufacturing Technologies career field programs submit an FY15 CTE-26 application with a Program of Study.
