State Profiles


Today’s career and technical education systems are evolving to meet the needs of students and employers in the 21st century. While these robust systems have always provided support and guidance to students seeking rewarding careers, many are also leading innovation, initiating transformational school reform efforts, and blurring the lines between CTE and traditional academic instruction. At the same time, each state's system is unique, with different governance structures and policy and program priorities. Find out more about each state's CTE system below.

Share this information with policymakers, business and the media by downloading a printable, one-page document with basics on your state's CTE program, including delivery, funding, enrollment, performance statistics and profiles of exemplary programs. For a more in-depth look at state CTE policies, check out State Policies Impacting CTE: Year in Review

If you’re aware of research or information that should be considered, have updates to existing information, or if you identify technical problems, please contact ACTE Research Manager Catherine Imperatore.
