Texas Education Agency (TEA) Programs of Study Refresh Public Comment
Programs of Study Refresh Public Comment Perkins V is federal legislation requiring states that receive federal Career and Technical Education (CTE) funds to align CTE programs of study to high-wage, in-demand, and high-skill occupations. Texas’ State Plan indicates that the Texas Education Agency (TEA) will review programs of study every four years to ensure they meet the needs of the Texas workforce. TEA’s Career and Technical Education team conducted a statewide listening tour and obtained feedback from over 685 participants. Stakeholder feedback and labor market information analysis was provided to a CTE advisory committee made up of district leaders, teachers, postsecondary staff, and industry leaders. The CTE advisory committee used this information and feedback to guide recommendations for the Programs of Study Refresh to be implemented during the 2024-2025 school year.
TEA is soliciting additional public comment on the recommendations through August 14, 2023. Click here to view the recommendations from the CTE advisory committee for TEA’s 14 career clusters. The proposed updates include elements of the 53 currently approved statewide programs of study, two regional programs of study recommended for statewide approval, and four proposed new statewide programs of study.
Click on this survey to provide feedback on the proposed programs of study updates. The survey will allow you to make comments on one or more programs of study.
Based on the feedback received during the public comment period, additional updates may be made to the programs of study before they are finalized and released in the fall of 2023. Updates to the programs of study will be implemented beginning in the fall of the 2024-2025 school year. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the CTE team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
