The Annual Career and Technical Education High School Report, 2007
Iowa Department of Education
This report, the first "Annual Career and Technical Education High School Report" was created to serve as a rich resource for educators, school and college administrators, policymakers, and other citizens by providing essential summative data on career and technical education in Iowa at the high school level. Students increasingly need advanced academic and technical skills to enter and remain successfully employed. Because of rapid changes in the workplace, it is critical that all high school students be prepared for both careers and postsecondary education. As this report demonstrates, career and technical education in Iowa's high schools is strong with many exceptional programs and initiatives such as career academies/tech prep and Project Lead The Way[R]. Following an introduction, this report is comprised of the 12 sections: (1) Purpose of the Report; (2) Career Clusters; (3) High School Career and Technical Education Enrollment; (4) High School Career and Technical Education Demographics; (5) Career Academies/Tech Prep; (6) High School Career and Technical Education Programs; (7) High School Career and Technical Education Performance Indicators; (8) High School Career and Technical Education Staff; (9) High School Career and Technical Education Finances; (10) Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSOs); (11) Career Planning and Exploration; (12) Glossary. An appendix provides information the 16 Career Clusters. (Contains 38 tables and 10 figures.)
