CTE Student Categories

What Kind of CTE Student Will I Be?

Four statewide categories describe the level of involvement high school students have had in CTE and document the technical skill attainment they achieve.

 

A CTE participant has earned at least 0.5 credit in any state CTE course.

 

A CTE concentrator has earned at least 2.0 credits in the same state approved Pathway, and earned 70% on local technical skills measures, or passed a third-party, technical skill assessment, or earned an industry-recognized certificate. 

 

Junior and Senior students at South Haven achieve the technical skills measure by

  1. averaging their CTE letter grades for courses in the same pathway, or
  2. averaging their CTE Precision exams grades for courses in the same pathway, or
  3. by passing the general CTE assessment (cPASS) or pathway specific CTE assessments (for example: Comprehensive Agriculture). Students typically take these assessments in March/April of their Junior/Senior year or
  4. by earning an industry-recognized certificates (for example: OSHAA 10 hour, CNA, Safe Serve, or State Ag Certificate)

 

A CTE completer has earned at least 3.0 credits in the same state approved Pathway, and earned 70% on local technical skills measures, or passed a third-party, technical skill assessment, or earned an industry-recognized certificate. 

 

Junior and Senior students at South Haven achieve the technical skills measure by

What's This Certificate Thing?

Certifications are nationally recognized verifications of skill or knowledge attainment based on generally-accepted skill standards for an occupation. Certifications usually include a combination of an examination, demonstration of skills, and/or experience requirements.

 

The benefits of industry-recognized credentials are many: High school and postsecondary CTE programs that lead to associate degrees, certificates, and industry-recognized credentials can help young people find skilled employment and give them the option of later returning to school for a higher degree. Credentials verify skill mastery, educational attainment, and the authority to perform a task or operation—conveying real economic benefits in the labor market. Credentials are also valuable to employers, allowing them to determine the skill or education level of job applicants without having to perform an assessment for each one.

 

Each of the pathways South Haven School offers leads to an industry recognized certification or credential.
