CTEIG Excutive Summary - Legislative ReportCareer Technical Education Incentive Grant (CTEIG) Legislative Executive Summary 2019 and 2020.
A California Department of Education Report to the Governor and the Legislature
This report is required annually by California Education Code (EC) sections 53071(c)(11)(C) and 88828(d)(8)(B), as currently established by Senate Bill 75 (Chapter 51, Statutes of 2019). It includes recommendations from the California Workforce Pathways Joint Advisory Committee (CWPJAC), established pursuant to EC Section 12053, regarding the data metrics collected from grantees of the Career Technical Education Incentive Grant (CTEIG) and the kindergarten through grade twelve component of the Strong Workforce Program (K–12 SWP). The 2019 Recommendation Report (2017–18 academic year) has been incorporated into this 2020 Annual Report (2018–19 academic year), with recommendations for both grant programs.
It is the general recommendation of the CWPJAC to make only non-substantive changes to the CTEIG and K–12 SWP metrics at this time. The recommendations are intended to precisely align each metric as reflected in the current administration of both programs. The determinants informing our recommendations are the legislative intent, a uniform source from which data can be gathered and utilized for measurement, and a methodological basis for developing functional indicators for each metric. These minor changes will allow for the disaggregation of each metric by race/ethnicity and special populations, enable consistent measurement across several state and federal programs, and foster enhanced comparative analyses of future data collections.
With the Federal Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act (Perkins V) serving as supplemental to the CTEIG and the K–12 SWP, the importance of alignment cannot be overstated. Prior to the 2020 data collection period, the California Department of Education (CDE) and California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office staff began to reexamine their approaches to data collection, methodology, and translating the data metrics into functional indicators to meet the requirements specified by state and federal programs. This report presents an overview of the strategy to pursue complete policy and program alignment in the future and has been included as a recommendation by the CWPJAC.
