CTE Program Review


Ohio legislation1 requires the Ohio Department of Education and the lead district of each Career-Technical Planning District to conduct an annual review for each career-technical education program within the planning district. During the next several months, the Office of Career-Technical Education and a team of Career Technical Planning District leaders will design and develop the review process.

Also, Ohio legislation requires the completion of the following:

  • Adopt new quality program standards for career-based intervention programs (category 3) by Dec. 31, 2013;
  • During Fiscal Year 2015, the department will use the new standards to conduct the review of all career-based intervention programs. The review will be the basis to determine funding approval for FY 2016. The department must notify the district of the decision by May 15, 2015;
  • The department must adopt quality program standards for all other career-technical education programs (categories 1, 2, 4 and 5) by June 30, 2015.
  • During FY 2016, the Office of Career-Technical Education and the Career Technical Planning District must begin conducting Career Technical Education Program Reviews of all career-technical education programs; and
  • To continue to receive funding, career technical programs must be in compliance with all directives issued by the department or the lead district of each Career-Technical Planning District as a result of the program review.

If you have any questions, please contact Jamie Nash, associate director, Office of Career-Technical Education, at (614) 752-1366.
