High-quality CTE Tools

A A A

ACTE's comprehensive, research-based Quality CTE Program of Study Framework describes 12 elements of a high-quality program of study. Follow the links below for resources that support success within each element. 

ACTE is currently pilot testing the latest version of the framework, including the 12 elements and a number of criteria within each element, and an accompanying rubric. When finalized, the rubric will be a voluntary tool for self-evaluation, program improvement and secondary-postsecondary collaboration. In addition to this resource center, ACTE is developing other resources to support and recognize high-quality CTE programs of study.

This resource is currently under development. The following webpages will be revised during winter 2017-18.
