Oregon CTE State Plan

The Oregon Career and Technical Education (CTE) State Plan

The Oregon CTE State Plan is a high level, four-year strategic plan that integrates state and federal priorities into an implementation plan for the "Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act" (commonly known as Perkins V). Leveraging ongoing partnerships across the state, the CTE State Plan identifies actionable strategies to ensure high-quality learning that is accessible to all learners in Oregon.

The Oregon CTE State Plan calls for the formation of a Statewide Advisory Council to provide ongoing advice, guidance, and feedback on the strategies and progress being made throughout the implementation of the State Plan and its goals.

The Oregon CTE State Plan was adopted by the State Board of Education at their meeting on March 19, 2020.


2024-2027 CTE State Plan Revision Process

Oregon is in the process of revising its CTE State Plan for approval by the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education (OCTAE). This plan is required for federal Perkins funding, but more broadly serves as Oregon's strategic plan for CTE.

The revised plan will continue supporting CTE Programs of Study, schools, and colleges to ensure that all students and families, including those historically and currently underserved and marginalized, are welcome, safe, and included in our institutions and programs. The priority is to create quality relationships, experiences, and interactions among learners, educators, and business and community partners.

The revisions to the plan are being led by a steering committee consisting of staff and state agency leaders from the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) and the Higher Education Coordinating Commission (HECC). This group is gathering input and feedback on the priorities and strategies to be included in the plan.

There were multiple ways students/learners, parents, educators, administrators, business and industry representatives, community organizations, and other key partners provided input on the proposed strategies and activities to help shape the plan revisions and ensure diverse perspectives are reflected.


Engagement Sessions

ODE/HECC hosted over 50 engagement sessions between May and December of 2023, and consulted with over 1,200 CTE partners—including students and families/caregivers; tribal leaders; educators; administrators; regional coordinators and grant managers; advisory council/board members; and business, industry, and workforce development partners and community-based organizations—to help develop the new four-year CTE strategic plan.
