CTE is

  • 21st-century technology in classrooms;
  • programs of study in high-wage, high-demand, or high-skill fields;
  • workforce, community, and postsecondary collaborations;
  • workplace learning connected to classroom instruction; and
  • continual professional development for teacher effectiveness and content expertise.
