FCS in CTE Framework

Framework for FCS in Career & Technical Education

The Framework for Family & Consumer Sciences (FCS) in Career and Technical Education (CTE) provides a tool for developing high-quality FCS programs of study. It is designed to help local and state CTE administrators leverage their FCS programs to support students preparation for high-skill, high-wage, and/or in-demand careers and meet local economic and workforce demands for talent.

Today’s FCS Education courses can easily be aligned to CTE career pathways and build relevant and rigorous CTE programs of study that benefit students and communities.
