Elements of a High Quality Family & Consumer Sciences Program
About the Session
To bring clarity to the conversation around high-quality CTE and help CTE educators and administrators develop and improve the quality of their CTE programs of study, ACTE has created an evidence-based framework defining high-quality CTE across 12 elements. This Webinar will provide an overview of ACTE’s Quality CTE Program of Study Framework and how it might be applied to FCS programs. You’ll learn about the related self-evaluation tools and resources, and key ways the Framework can help to meet Perkins V’s requirements for data-driven decision-making through the Comprehensive Local Needs Assessment.
After the webinar, participants will:
- Know the standard elements that make up a high-quality CTE program of study.
- Understand how to apply the Framework to their individual programs for program improvement purposes.
- Recognize how the Framework can be applied to requirements of Perkins V.
