The Division of School Improvement develops and implements statewide review
processes for Career and Technical Education (CTE) Program effectiveness. These
processes promote program effectiveness, improve student performance, and monitor
compliance for all students served through CTE programs.
CTE program is a part of the Performance-Based Monitoring (PBM) system. PBM uses
the Performance-Based Monitoring Analysis System (PBMAS) to assign required
intervention activities based on the district's annual
performance on individual indicators and patterns across all indicators.
PBMAS program staging will be released in the Intervention, Stage, and Activity Manager (ISAM) application in late October.
Prior to the staging release, intervention guidance and resources for the 2018-2019 monitoring year will be provided to districts on this web page.
Annual Notification of Nondiscrimination in CTE Programs
Every district providing CTE program must advise students, parents, employees, and the general public that all CTE opportunities will be offered without regard to race, color, national origin, sex, or disability. More information about annual notification requirements is provided on the Division of School Improvement Methods of Administration (MOA) web page.
CTE eGrant Application and Plan Data Review
Districts staged in CTE must review
results of PBMAS indicators that reveal high levels of performance concern and
indicators listed as having No Data (ND). Improvement activities must be noted
in the CTE Program Effectiveness Report (PER) within the eGrant application for
federal Carl D. Perkins funds. Activities include
actions taken to improve
- student performance
or address data reporting concerns related to Public Education Information
Management System (PEIMS) submissions,
- coding of State of Texas
Assessments of Academic Readiness, or
- the reporting of
technical skill attainment (2S1) in the CTE Program Evaluation Report.
CTE program staff and
Division of School Improvement staff review the PER to ensure improvement activities are incorporated for
all areas of low performance.
