CTE Programs of Study Application Resources


In Oregon, the CTE Program of Study is the cornerstone of Career and Technical Education programming. In the Perkins V Act, the term "program of study" means a coordinated, non-duplicative sequence of academic and technical content at the secondary and postsecondary level that

  • incorporates challenging state academic standards;
  • addresses both academic and technical knowledge and skills, including employability skills;
  • is aligned with the needs of industries in the economy of the state, region, or local area;
  • progresses in specificity from a broad overview at the Career Cluster level, to occupation-specific instruction at the Focus Area level;
  • has multiple entry and exit points; and
  • culminates in the attainment of a recognized postsecondary credential and/or degree.

Please use the documents and resources below to research, develop, and submit an application for a CTE Program of Study.
