CTE Program Review
Ohio legislation1 requires the Ohio Department of Education and the lead district of each secondary Career-Technical Planning District to conduct an annual review for each career-technical education program within the planning district. The Office of Career-Technical Education and a team of Career-Technical Planning District leaders are designing 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. Conduct review of all Career-Based Intervention programs during FY2015. The review by the Ohio Department of Education will be the basis to determine funding approval for FY2016. The department must notify the district of the decision by May 15, 2015. Adopt quality program standards for all other career-technical education programs (categories 1, 2, 4 and 5) by June 30, 2015. Conduct Career-Technical Education Reviews of all career-technical education programs (collaboratively by Career-Technical Planning Districts and the Office of Career-technical Education). To continue to receive funding, career-technical programs must be in compliance with all directives issued by the Ohio Department of Education 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.
