Making it Work for All Students
CTE provides sequenced curricular pathways that include career-related and academic content standards to prepare students for success in postsecondary education, careers, and lifelong learning referred to as Programs of Study.
CTE courses are not necessarily aligned vertically. They may be obviously sequenced (e.g., Accounting I, Accounting II, and so forth). But they may also be (a) courses that draw from more than one pathway within a sector (e.g., Plant and Animal Physiology, which takes standards from the Plant Science, Animal Science, and Agriscience pathways); or (b) discrete courses that draw from a particular pathway (e.g., Introduction to Network Communications). Not all courses build on other prerequisite courses in the same content area.
