Career & Technical Education

Dear CTE teachers, coordinators, and administrators,

Career cluster namesLast fall, the State Superintendent’s Academic Standards Review Council recommended that the CTE standards be revised. A lot has happened since 2013 when our current CTE standards were introduced. As you can imagine, the review committees have been hard at work updating and rewriting the standards to reflect changes in their pathways and the world around us.

Here’s where you can help. Public input is vital for ensuring the standards make sense for Wisconsin students and educators. We want to make sure that you are aware of the public comment period, which runs from July 1 to August 1, so you can set aside some time to think about the new standards and share your thoughts with us.

Links will be added to the CTE Standards webpage once the standards are open to public comment. Then we ask that you take a survey on one of the subject-specific standards:

Career cluster names

  • Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources
  • Business and Information Technology
  • Family and Consumer Sciences
  • Health Science
  • Marketing, Management, and Entrepreneurship
  • Technology and Engineering

A portion of each subject-specific survey includes questions on the Career Readiness Standards (formerly the Wisconsin Common Career Technical Standards). The Career Readiness Standards provide a foundation on which the subject-specific standards are built. So if you are taking a subject-specific survey, there’s no need to take the Career Readiness survey; otherwise, if none of the subject-specific surveys are a good match for you, we invite you to take the Career Readiness survey on employability skills separately.

Feel free to share the links with all relevant networks and connections. Please contact us if you have any questions.

Thank you!

Your Wisconsin CTE Team
