  • OVERVIEW: "The view that education and career development are lifeling, and that CTE can begin as early as elementary school and span high school through postsecondary education and on-the-job training is infused throughout the plan. The notion that strong CTE improves academic learning, and, conversely, that infusing or reinforcing inherent academic content can strengthen CTE, girds the plan as well. Equally important is ensuring that the system is "demand-driven"; that is, continuously responsive to the ever-changing needs of a complex global workplace, as well as to the needs of increasingly diverse learners, and of a democratic society that requires all of its citizens to be critical thinkers and problem solvers. As one stakeholder commented, "nothing short of our democracy is at stake." (2008-2012 California State Plan for Career Technical Education, page vii).

SB70, Senate Bill 70

  • BUDGET: 

  • OVERVIEW: "In 2005, the Governor's Initiative on Improving and Strengthening Career Technical Education (CTE) was successfully carried through Senate Bill (SB) 70 by Senator Scott. SB 70 allocated $20,000,000 from the Community College reversion account to be specifically used for the improving of CTE at both the community college and secondary level. The bill allowed for CDE to be an active and full partner in the development of the plan to carry out this important initiative. The CDE Career and Workforce Innovations (CWI) Unit provides the leadership in this work. For the past five years, CWI Unit staff have met and conferred on the plan for the funds to be dispersed to the CTE field. In 2006, SB 1130 was signed by the Governor to continue this important work with additional funding for the next five years through the 2013-14 fiscal years."
