Office for Career/Vocational Technical Education

Programs

Chapter 74-approved vocational technical education programs are programs that meet the definition of vocational technical education contained in Massachusetts General Law Chapter 74. Districts apply for program approval to DESE’s Office for College, Career, and Technical Education (OCCTE) pursuant to Chapter 74 and the Vocational Technical Education Regulations. Note that all Chapter 74-approved vocational technical education programs meet the Perkins Act definition of career and technical education. Chapter 74 programs are considered by the Department to be High Quality College and Career Pathways.

For School Districts considering applying for new Chapter 74 programs, see resources at Massachusetts Chapter 74 Application Timeline.
