Career and Technology Education Allotment
School 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 in two or more advanced CTE courses for three or more credits. Additionally, students enrolled in a designated P-TECH or a 9-12 New Tech campus (identified by having an active agreement with the New Tech Network) are eligible for $50 per student. These two funding elements determine a district's total CTE allotment. The CTE allotment applies to students in grades 7-12 who take an approved career and technical education (CTE) course designated with an "H" in the CTE course column of the Texas Education Data Standards, Section 4, Service-ID (CO22) code table.
For more information, see Texas Education Code: §48.106, Career and Technology Education Allotment.
* Districts receive 35% more funding for CTE full-time equivalent students than for regular students.
