The Alaska Career & Technical Education (CTE) plan seeks to “develop a CTE system for Alaskan learners that is inclusive, comprehensive and accessible” (Alaska CTE Plan, 2010). Educators, business and community partners are working together to implement this vision and create a CTE system in Alaska. Having common CTE definitions can assist in the conversations and work involved with the implementation.
Multiple stakeholders have contributed to the recommended CTE definitions for Alaska and now we are requesting additional feedback from secondary, postsecondary, business and industry stakeholders. Please consider spending 10 minutes to complete the CTE Common Definitions Survey. The data collected from this survey will be referenced in determining common CTE definitions for the State of Alaska or to determine if different definitions are needed. This survey is anonymous and although direct quotes may be used, they will not be attributed to a specific individual.
After analyzing the survey responses, we will post the CTE Definitions document on the CTE Plan website (www.alaskacteplan.com).
Thank you for your ongoing commitment to CTE in Alaska!
