Report to the Governor and Legislature Addendum

California Department of Education annual report to the Governor, Legislature, and the Department of Finance on the Career Technical Education Incentive Grant.

California Department of Education Report to the Governor, Legislature, and the Department of Finance: Career Technical Education Incentive Grant Annual Report

The California Education Code (EC) sections 53071 and EC 88828 require the California Workforce Pathways Joint Advisory Committee (CWPJAC) to review the data metrics for the Career Technical Education Incentive Grant (CTEIG) and the Kindergarten through Grade Twelve Strong Workforce Program (K–12 SWP). The CWPJAC is also charged with making recommendations as to whether these metrics are the most appropriate metrics to measure and evaluate program outcomes for both new and renewal applicants, and whether other metrics should be included. The CWPJAC’s review of program metrics was included in a Legislative Report which was submitted to the Department of Finance (DOF) on November 30, 2020.

The CTEIG and K–12 SWP Legislative Report submitted to the DOF summarized the CWPJAC’s recommendations regarding program metrics that were approved at a meeting held on November 20, 2020. The summary may have resulted in the impression that there was indeed a change being recommended in the CTEIG and K–12 SWP metrics, when there was not.  In fact, the CWPJAC approved a recommendation indicating that no change to the CTEIG and K–12 SWP data metrics, other than non-substantive clarifying edits, were going to be included in the Legislative Report. 

Below is a copy of the recommendation approved by CWPJAC members.

CWPJAC Recommendation Approved on November 20, 2020:

  • A phased approach for refining and updating the CTEIG and the K–12 SWP data metrics.
  • The phased approach will include a timeline and regular reporting on short term, intermediate, and long term CTEIG and K–12 SWP metrics.
  • Staff should identify which metrics can be reported in the short-term, beginning with the current funding cycle (2020–21), and which metrics will require more development in the future.
  • Permitting staff to make any necessary, non-substantive clarifying edits to this phased approach.
