Do you have enough paperwork to do?
We do too. That's why, whenever possible, we delegate ours to a computer.
Program EffectivenessFor evaluating your CTE program's effectiveness, you're probably the best person to do that. But we can help you a little by letting you easily find which of your Limited English Proficiency students are participating in your program, for example. That's just one case. We can help you filter on many other student attributes too, which can provide you some of the evidence you'll be entering in your Perkins Program Effectiveness Report and CLNA for equal access and special populations.
The Perkins Grant application is a long one (17 pages the last time we checked!) though, and it's not all long descriptions and short fields of evidence for program effectiveness. A sizable part of the grant application is dedicated to certifications and licenses earned by your students. That's one place where we can really shine.
Your teachers will log in to the system, find the certifications relevant to only the courses they teach, and check off which of their students took or took & passed the examination. Based on that information, we can show you all of the reports above.
What if all of your vendors worked with CTE Directors, CTE Coordinators, and CTE Teachers to design the software they use?
We worked directly with one of our school districts when it came time to get teacher buy-in for using using this, so it's as streamlined as possible: log in, enter the information, and get out. We don't want them to spend a lot of time entering data -- they can use that time for more important things.
Work-Based Learning and CTSOsCTE focuses a lot on outside the traditional classroom experiences, so we don't stop at certifications. You can collect data on your CTSO participation and WBL hours as well. And that's still only a small part of it.
There are reports to let you know ahead of time, how you are doing with participation, concentration, and completion in the Texas statewide programs of study. We'll help you identify students who aren't on track, or may be slipping away from earning their CTE endorsements. There's even a module where students can explore careers and use that information to select their endorsement -- and that uses your Texas regional labor market data to show them the wages.
Providing CTE data to your PEIMS department becomes a breeze, and your school board and other stakeholders will appreciate being more in-the-know.
Want to see what your looked like on a snapshot date? No problem, we've got that too.
Our CTE Data & Analysis also integrates well with our student personal graduation plans to give you a broader picture of each student's high school career.
