Tools for Ensuring CTE Program Success

Are the CTE programs in your district thriving? Are Perkins funds being used efficiently? Does the Perkins data indicate student success and generate support for the CTE programs? How do you know? Perkins coordinators throughout California have developed surveys, checklists, and evaluation instruments that gather information identifying program success and gaps. This presentation will feature many tools that local educational agencies can use to improve, enhance or expand CTE during these difficult budget times. Participants are encouraged to bring any tools they have developed and are using in their agencies and be ready to share them during the workshop.
