Self Study Materials for Review

Self-study is the first step in the career and technical education approval process. The self-study review is required for all existing programs and new programs seeking approval. Its purpose is to bring together partners to review the CTE program, propose relevant modifications, and evaluate the degree to which the program meets the policy requirements approved by the Board of Regents on February 6, 2001. Self-study review will include: Curriculum review Benchmarks for student performance and student assessment Teacher certification and highly-qualified status of instructional staff Work-based learning opportunities Teacher and student schedules Resources, including staff, facilities, and equipment Accessibility for all students Work skills employability profile Professional development plans Projected number of students to be served
