CTE Listening Tour
The CTE team is conducting a listening tour across Texas to gather diverse perspectives on opportunities to strengthen our statewide programs of study.
There will be six in-person events and two virtual events. Each event will consist of a session for educators in the morning, a session for business and community leaders in the afternoon, and a session for families and students in the evening.
Your input is essential to ensuring that the refreshed programs of study are aligned to high-wage, in-demand occupations across the state, and designed to facilitate strong implementation. To register to attend a listening tour session, click here for dates, locations, and registration information.

Perkins V Indicator Reports, 2020-21
The Perkins V Indicator Summary and Supplemental Reports for 2020-21 will be accessible in the Texas Education Agency Login (TEAL) system through the Career and Technical Education Reports (CTER) application in late April. A request for access to data in the CTER application must be submitted through the TEAL system, where it will be routed for approval by the district superintendent or designee before final approval is given by TEA.
Educational Aide I Certification
The Principles in Education and Training course is applicable for a student to meet the requirements for the Educational Aide I Certificate. While the CTE team works with the Division of Educator Preparation and Certification to update SBEC rules at the next available opportunity, districts should continue to count Principles of Education and Training as a course that allows students to earn the Educational Aide I Certificate.
