Presentation Description: 
Learn about a tool that allows LEAs to align CTE course codes (formerly CBEDS) with Occupational Labor Market Information data from the California Employment Development Department and provides the ability to “map” employment needs locally and statewide in order to meet demands for workers in particular industry sectors. LEAs should bring CTE course sequences and programs of study as there will be time to assign course codes for reporting purpose.
