As the country continues to grapple with the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, CTE stakeholders around the nation are thinking ahead to what education might look like in the future. Whether schools and postsecondary institutions will be able to open fully for the 2020-21 school year using social distancing methods, utilize a blended approach or continue with remote learning, there are significant implications for CTE programs, students and educators.

High-quality CTE: Planning for a COVID-19-impacted School Year is a guide for helping CTE stakeholders identify the key considerations, guiding questions and emerging best practices that should shape future planning. The guide is organized around the elements of the ACTE Quality CTE Program of Study FrameworkTM to capture the breadth of issues important to maintaining CTE program quality within any of the possible educational environments being considered for the new school year. It is accompanied by a webinar series exploring issues and sharing ideas from the field about CTE planning for the 2020-21 school year.
