Career/Vocational Technical Education

CVTE Onsite Monitoring

DESE's Office for College, Career, and Technical Education (OCCTE) conducts reviews of all schools and school districts that offer Chapter 74 state-approved vocational technical education programs and non-Chapter 74 career and technical education programs funded through federal Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Improvement Act allocations. The purpose of the reviews, which include examination of documentary evidence and onsite interviews and observations, is to determine whether the programs offered comply with federal and state law and state regulations. The materials below are used in OCCTE's onsite monitoring activities in school districts and public two-year colleges.

Methods of Administration (MOA)

Districts, charter schools, and community colleges that offer career/vocational technical education programs are subject to a review based on the federal Vocational Guidelines, in accordance with the “Guidelines for Eliminating Discrimination and Denial of Services on the Basis of Race, Color, National Origin, Sex and Handicap in Vocational Education Programs”, more commonly understood as Method of Administration (MOA) Reviews. The MOA reviews are conducted by the Department, under the direction of USED Office for Civil Rights. Any secondary or postsecondary institution offering career/vocational technical education programs in Massachusetts, regardless of receiving Perkins dollars, is subject to an MOA review.
