The Career and Technical Education Enrollment Reporting System (herein referred to as CTEERS) is an important aspect of the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Improvement Act of 2006 (CPA) as it collects enrollment information at the 11th, 12th and 13th grade levels on those secondary districts receiving CPA funds or participating in CPA Basic Grant projects.
This collected enrollment information is in turn utilized to respond to the Federal Performance Report mandated of the State, to gather information related to the districts for the State Plan, to assist districts in measuring progress to mandated Core Indicators of Performance, and finally as a criterion in the Office of Civil Rights process. It is, therefore, very important and critical that all enrollment information requested by CTEERS from the district be timely, concise, complete and accurate. Failure to report in such a manner can and will jeopardize the district's financial grant for the reporting year.
The three reports that CPA Grant participating districts are required to submit are the the Graduate Follow-up Report, Composite Enrollment Report, and the End of the Year Narrative Report. Data is also collected to find graduation rates for CTE Completers.
