Career/Vocational Technical Education Reporting & Data Resources
This page provides data and reporting resources for school districts and public two-year colleges offering career/vocational technical education programs overseen by the Office for College, Career, and Technical Education (OCCTE). Laws and regulations require districts, public two-year colleges and the state to assess the effectiveness of CVTE programs through the collection of student-level performance data, and to disaggregate it for populations of students and by program. These can be used to make progress toward improving student performance. This approach, which embodies critical thinking and lifelong learning, may lead to valuable changes at the individual, small group, and whole school or district-wide levels.
