Fall 2018 CTE Data Collection BEGINS

The Fall 2018 CTE Data Collection begins on October 1 and ends December 31, 2018.  The Fall CTE Data Collection is a follow up to last year's Spring CTE Data Collection.  Students identified as CTE Concentrators last year (2017-2018) and graduated in the spring of 2018 should be contacted between October 1 and December 31 and asked their current post-graduation status. After contact, the appropriate post-graduation status code must be entered into the AIM/Infinite Campus data system for each CTE Concentrator.  All high schools that received funding from the Carl D. Perkins federal grant program in 2017-2018 are required to complete this fall follow up collection to maintain their eligibility to receive Perkins funding.

Instructions for completing the Fall CTE Data Collection--called the 'Quick Reference Guide' for the Fall CTE Data Collection--are located in two places on the OPI website:  on the AIM web page listed in AIM User Guides and also on the CTE web page under the 'Data Collections' tab.  

PLEASE NOTE:  Be sure to verify the list of CTE Concentrators from what your district submitted last spring.  Any additions, corrections, or changes to the list of CTE Concentrators must be made no later than November 15, 2018, to be accurately reflected in federal reporting and used to compute Perkins Performance Indicators for your school.
