Policy and Advocacy

Social Media Advocacy

Sharing your thoughts with your Senators or Representative on a routine basis will keep CTE in the front of their minds. By using advocacy as a tool, we can influence Congress to continue and improve successful programs like Perkins, ESEA and the Workforce Investment Act. Social media advocacy is one of the quickest and simplest ways to spread the CTE message to your Members of Congress. You can share about the benefits of your CTE program, activities your students are involved in, or your thoughts on key policy issues. You can even post pictures to illustrate your points.

Certification Data Exchange Project

ACTE, in cooperation with a number of national and state partners, is supporting a project to expand and improve data exchange between industry certification organizations and state longitudinal data systems.
