Career & Technology Education (CTE)
CTE, Transition and LID: Accredited Courses for Students with Low Incidence Disabilities

CTE instruction aims at developing foundational skills, core workplace competencies, and specific skill competencies in various occupational areas. Internships, practicums, cooperative education, school-based enterprises, dual enrollment programs, and apprenticeships are a few venues that deliver CTE by providing meaningful opportunities for leaners to apply their academic and technical skills. We serve the career and education community through targeted support for CTE compliance, program development and implementation with rigor and relevancy; bridging with postsecondary education and industry partners to build a global workforce, quality education programs and 21st century learners.

Important Session Information:

The Foundation High School Program became the default graduation program for all students entering ninth grade starting from the 2014-2015 school year, encompassing the attainment of an endorsement and distinguished level of achievement. This program mandates the completion of five electives belonging to a Career and Technical Education (CTE) program of study. However, the HB 165 bill, passed in the 86th Legislative Session, permits students with significant disabilities to earn an endorsement through a modified curriculum.

If you're seeking guidance on supporting a student with significant disabilities in CTE, we've got you covered. We'll explore various strategies to assist students with Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) in demonstrating mastery of Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) for CTE courses eligible for state-accredited credits. Additionally, we'll delve into approaches to modify the TEKS to facilitate students' transition to post-secondary goals while ensuring they are served in the least restrictive environment. Our session, co-taught with Transition, CTE, and Low Incident consultants, aims to enhance your accountability and College, Career, and Military Readiness (CCMR) ratings.
