Career Pathways


Career & Technical Education Audit

On January 30, 2019 Governor Ron DeSantis issued (PDF) that charts a course for Florida to become number 1 in the nation for workforce education by 2030.

2020欧洲杯网址APP (PDF) directs Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran to audit career and technical education (CTE) offerings in the state and develop a methodology to audit and review offerings annually. The audit should include:

  • An analysis of alignment with certificate or degree programs offered at the K-12 and postsecondary levels;
  • An analysis of alignment with professional level industry certifications;
  • An analysis of alignment with high-growth, high-demand and high wage employment opportunities; and
  • A review of student outcomes such as academic achievement, college readiness, postsecondary enrollment, credential attainment and attainment of industry certifications.

To accomplish the goals and vision of the Governor’s executive order, FDOE is working with CareerSource Florida, the Department of Economic Opportunity, the Board of Governors, the Florida College System, school districts and business and industry leaders to ensure CTE offerings are aligned with market demands.

Audit Results

Phase 1: Statewide Review of Programs

2020欧洲杯网址APPOn January 24, 2020, the department hosted a webinar summarizing progress on the CTE audit, which included analyses of CTE secondary and postsecondary program quality based on indicators of program quality. The unit of analysis is statewide programs, where each program is counted once, regardless of how many institutions offer the program.

2020欧洲杯网址APPAs a result of the statewide review, each career preparatory, technology education and postsecondary program fell into one of four categories:

  • Program met benchmarks (statewide) – no further action is required
  • Program did not meet workforce benchmarks (statewide) – progressing for further review of local or industry need
  • Program did not meet institutional performance benchmarks (statewide) – progressing for further review of institutional performance
  • Program did not meet workforce and institutional benchmarks (statewide) – progressing for further review of local or industry need and institutional performance

Phase 2: Local Program Review

For active career preparatory, technology education and postsecondary programs that did not meet benchmarks on market demand or institutional performance, the local program reviews are designed to provide additional information about each program at each district/institution offering the program. On February 3, 2020, the department emailed memos and templates to all districts/institutions that offer programs progressing to local reviews. Districts/institutions that offer programs that are progressing for local review should refer to the table below for next steps. Note that programs were which there were insufficient data are also included in the further review of institutional performance.

Action Resulting from State Audit Findings:
Requires further review of local or industry need
Requires further review of institutional performance

Statewide Audit Findings:
Did not meet workforce benchmarks
Did not meet institutional benchmarks or had insufficient data*

Templates:
Track A- If a program is being offered in the 2020-2021 year, each district and Florida College System (FCS) institution is required to complete a labor market alignment review as part of the comprehensive local needs assessment (CLNA) for Perkins V

Track B- For all other programs, including baccalaureates, institutions are required to complete the Market Demand Template
Program Status Template- Institutions that offer programs that did not meet institutional benchmarks or did not have data sufficient for analyses must complete the Program Status Template

Deadlines:
Track A- June 2020
Track B- April 15, 2020
April 15, 2020

*Programs for which there were not sufficient data at the state level are automatically referred for local review of institutional performance. These programs underwent a market demand review.
