districts are eligible to receive weighted* funding for eligible
full-time equivalent (FTE) students in approved Career and Technology
Education (CTE) programs. In addition to this weighted funding, school
districts are also eligible to receive $50 for each FTE student enrolled
- two or more advanced CTE courses for three or more credits, or
- an advanced CTE course as part of a tech-prep program.
These two funding elements determine a district's total CTE allotment. The allotment applies to:
- students in grades 9–12 enrolled in CTE programs, and
- students with disabilities in grades 7–12 enrolled in Career and Technology for the Disabled (CTED) programs.
For more information, see Texas Education Code: §42.154, Career and Technology Education Allotment.
* Districts receive 35% more funding for CTE students than for regular students.
