The Handbook: Secondary Career and Technical Education Resource Handbook for CTE Administrators. Revised.
Arizona State Dept. of Education, Phoenix.
This document is intended as a user-friendly resource for administrators of career and technical education (CTE) programs in Arizona. The first section presents course descriptions, including a complete list of current competencies for each of Arizona's CTE programs, which are organized on four levels as follows: (1) technological foundations (grades 7-8); (2) courses in five occupational "clusters" designed to serve as a transition between foundation and occupationally specific instruction (grades 9-10); (3) occupationally specific instruction in 9 fields (grades 11-12); and (4) tech prep programs articulated with community colleges (designed for entry-level workers or learners enrolled in advanced education and training). The next two sections list Arizona's CTE programs and CTE program codes and titles. The fourth section details the coherent sequence and certification requirements for the 36 programs included in Arizona's CTE system. Descriptions of each program and each course in the recommended sequence for each program are presented. The remaining four sections contain the following materials: (1) a list of life skills taught in Arizona's CTE courses; (2) descriptions of the six occupational clusters into which Arizona's CTE programs are categorized; (3) an overview of the state's data reporting requirements, 13 sample forms, and definitions; and (4) county type district school numbers.
