Career and Technical Education (CTE)

The Career and Technical Education program is a part of the Performance-Based Monitoring Analysis System (PBMAS). The Performance-Based Monitoring Analysis System is utilized to assign required intervention activities to a local education agency (LEA) based on annual performance on individual indicators or patterns across indicators. The Division of School Improvement is responsible for PBMAS staging and identification of intervention requirements. Monitoring and support for PBMAS is provided by the Division of Review and Support.

Intervention Activities

The PBMAS district targeted improvement plan incorporates data findings, problem statements and root causes that address areas of low performance and program ineffectiveness identified in PBMAS.  

LEAs staged for interventions in any program area at Stage 3 or 4 submit their district targeted improvement plan to TEA via the Intervention, Stage, and Activity Manager (ISAM) application in the Texas Education Agency Login ( TEAL ). LEAs retain information used during the data analysis and needs assessment and only submit to TEA if requested.     

LEAs staged for interventions in any program area at Stage 1 or 2 develop their targeted improvement plan and retain it and all supporting documentation locally.
