CTE Participant

CTE Participant: Career Education

calculator icon

A student is a Career and Technical Education (CTE) participant if the student was enrolled in one or more CTE courses in the reporting year and completed (passed) at least one CTE course. A CTE Participant flag will display on the student's record in the WISEdata Portal, and the student will be included in the corresponding export file. CTE Participants are flagged as described in the next section.

Starting in the 2021-22 school year, a student is identified as a CTE participant if they are in grades 9-12, enrolled in a CTE course, and must have completed and passed the CTE course. With COVID-19 still impacting schools, DPI will continue to determine CTE participants based on a student's participation (enrollment) in at least one CTE course. 

 

Participation Flag Identification

Note, unlike manual reporting, there will not be a 'Participation' flag collected from districts. DPI will calculate the flag from submitted data. Participation will be identified from student section associations to CTE courses. For this reason, it's critical to submit related Roster coursework data.

CTE Participation Flag at School

If a student has only one course enrollment record at School A in a reporting year and if the student passed one or more CTE courses, then the student is counted as a CTE participant at School A.

If a student has multiple course enrollment records at School A in a reporting year and if in either of the enrollments the student passed or failed one or more CTE courses, then the student is counted as a CTE participant at School A.

CTE Participation Flag at District

If a student has only one course enrollment record at District A in a reporting year, and if the student passed one or more CTE courses, then the student is counted as a CTE participant at that district.

If a student has multiple course enrollment records within District A in a reporting year and if in either of the enrollments the student passed one or more CTE courses, then this student is counted as a CTE participant at that district.

USES: The CTE Participant data is federally reported through EDFacts and the Perkins Consolidated Annual Report

 

FAQs, Details, and Points to Note

 

  1. Career Education FAQs & Use Cases: For more specific information and scenarios, see the Career Education FAQs & Use Cases page.
  2. Participant but not a Concentrator: If the student is only a Participant but not a Concentrator, you do NOT need to submit student CTE Program Association for Concentration details. However, the student is enrolled in a CTE course for the current year, so submit Roster records for the CTE course(s), student and staff section associations, grades, and program data for programs not associated to courses.
