Nebraska Career and Technical Education Consolidated Annual Report, 2000-2001. Executive Summary.
Nebraska State Dept. of Education, Lincoln.
Career and technical education (CTE) in Nebraska prepares individuals at the secondary, postsecondary, and adult level for entry, advanced, technical, and managerial positions in business and industry. The Department of Education is the designated agency for administration of CTE and the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Technical Education Act of 1998. To promote continuous quality improvement and meet state-adjusted performance levels, Nebraska is implementing an accountability system, a component of the overall STARS (School-based Teacher-led Assessment and Reporting System). State leadership funds have been allocated to provide programs, services, and activities that prepare individuals for nontraditional training and employment; provide services to individuals in state institutions; and support CTE student organizations. To STARS, CTE has developed an alignment tool called Links-to-LEARNS (Leading Educational Achievement through Rigorous Nebraska Standards), a crosswalk of the discipline program curriculum frameworks with state academic standards. The mission of Tech Prep programs is to prepare individuals to succeed in a dynamic and technological world. Six community college areas serve as Tech Prep consortium administrative agents. For the secondary and postsecondary level for all core indicators, CTE is continuing to provide technical assistance workshops that deal with data quality and consistency in reporting and to refine Links-to-LEARNS.
