CTE and State Accountability

Published: 3/12/2018 11:33 AM
Kentucky’s proposed accountability system strongly reflects the Kentucky Board of Education’s (KBE’s) vision that each and every student is empowered and equipped with the knowledge, skills and dispositions to pursue a successful future. Kentucky’s accountability system provides students with multiple, meaningful opportunities to engage in pathways that build awareness of career opportunities, provide real-world instruction and lead to credentials with labor market value.

The accountability model spotlights CTE as a viable means to a high school diploma and preparation for postsecondary training and career by including opportunities for students to obtain a strong academic foundation along with career and technical content.

The proposed accountability system supports the Commonwealth’s overall strategy to grow the state’s economy and improve workforce development, so that Kentucky is able to attract new employers and successfully fill jobs statewide with well-educated and highly skilled Kentuckians.
