CDE Resources for Reopening CTE Programs
The Career and College Transition Division (CCTD) has produced this guidance document focusing exclusively on CTE. It is intended to be an additional, but critical resource for local boards of education and administrators as they consider offering and teaching CTE programs. The guidance is particularly important for CTE teachers to make sure that the curriculum offered and taught remains high-quality even as they take into consideration all the necessary measures for a safe classroom environment.

Legislative Priorities – As the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) is being implemented, we are seeing a decrease in resources being spent on Career Technical Education (CTE), in CTE course offerings, and in CTE opportunities being provided to California students. These decreases are not happening in every county or district in the state, but are happening in most. Download this concept paper for a description of the problem, a solution and talking points.
