CTE Programs of Study receive recognition
SOESD Career and Technical Education staff have worked with high school programs over the past year to assist them in meeting the requirements of the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Improvement Act of 2006. These applications have been approved and the programs have been recognized by the Oregon Department of Education as Programs of Study.
The Programs of Study designation is awarded by the Oregon Department of Education to CTE programs that meet a number of specific guidelines in the integration of academic and industry standards as well as career-specific knowledge and skills into their CTE classes.
The programs and high schools designated as Programs of Study this year are:
- Agriculture: Bonanza, Chiloquin, Crater, Eagle Point, Henley, and Lost River
- Business: Butte Falls, Hidden Valley (Bonanza, Lost River, Mazama, Newbridge, and
- North Valley are still pending ODE approval).
- Construction: Ashland, Klamath Union (Butte Falls, Eagle Point, Mazama, and Rogue River are still pending ODE approval).
- Child Development: Grants Pass
The CTE department staff will continue to guide the regionís 74 CTE programs in their Programs of Study application process. This yearís focus is on Construction, Marketing, Agriculture, and Communications programs. Most programs will align and articulate with Rogue Community College or Klamath Community College, although a few programs that are unavailable at local community colleges align with colleges outside the SOESD area.
