Name column
Career Technical
Education Course Defined
TOM TORLAKSON
State Superintendent
of Public Instruction
• Education Code (EC) section
51225.3 (E)(ii)
• A course in career technical
education means a course in a
district-operated CTE program that
is aligned to the CTE model
curriculum standards and
framework adopted by the state
board
12
CTE Courses
TOM TORLAKSON
State Superintendent
of Public Instruction
• Courses designated as career,
technical, trade or vocational by the
local level should be taught by an
individual holding a Designated
Subjects Vocational/Career Technical
Education Credential in the
appropriate industry or industry sector
13
Regulations
• Current Regulations –
TOM TORLAKSON
State Superintendent
of Public Instruction
Title 5 section 80004(c) clarifies that
holders of Single Subject Teaching
Credentials in specific subject areas
(agriculture, business, home
economics, industrial arts, and
industrial technology education) are
also authorized to teach trade,
technical, career or vocational
classes.
14
Primary Focus of Content
• Considerations –
TOM TORLAKSON
State Superintendent
of Public Instruction
Does the course have a primary focus
on CTE standards and industry sector
content?
Does the course have a primary focus
on academic content standards with
some integration of the industry sector
content based on the academy
theme?
15
Questions to Ask
• Flexibility –
TOM TORLAKSON
State Superintendent
of Public Instruction
As CTE designated courses become
integrated with academic curriculum,
counties and districts need to
understand the structure of the
program at the high school and ask
questions related to the focus of the
course and how instruction is
delivered.
16
Co-teaching
• Considerations –
TOM TORLAKSON
State Superintendent
of Public Instruction
Some integrated courses have a dual
emphasis in CTE and academic
standards.
Co-teaching models and collaborative
teaching may be one method for
staffing these courses
17
Local Assignment
Options & NCLB
TOM TORLAKSON
• Additional Considerations –
State Superintendent
of Public Instruction
Use of local assignment options in the
Education Code
Options for NCLB compliance for CTE
teachers
Options for NCLB compliance for
teachers serving on a local
assignment option

Alternative Methods for Meeting High
School Graduation Requirements
TOM TORLAKSON
State Superintendent
of Public Instruction
• EC Section 51225.3(b) provides an alternative
method for meeting high school graduation
requirements –
"The governing board, with the active involvement of parents,
administrators, teachers, and pupils, shall adopt alternative
means for students to complete the prescribed course of study
which may include practical demonstration of skills and
competencies, supervised work experience or other outside
school experience, career technical education courses in high
schools, courses offered by regional occupational centers or
programs, interdisciplinary study, independent study, and
credit earned at a postsecondary institution. Requirements for
graduation and specified alternative modes for completing the
prescribed course of study shall be made available to pupils,
parents, and the public."
22
Alternative Methods for Meeting High
School Graduation Requirements
TOM TORLAKSON
State Superintendent
of Public Instruction
Appropriate credential and authorization –
If a class is a CTE based class and the school
district has a policy that allows granting graduation
credits to the class per EC Section 51225.3(b), then
it may be taught by the holder of a credential
authorizing the teaching of CTE in the specified
industry sector.
