#MASSPchat 5/8 - CTE: Course Offerings and Learning Relevancy

A few weeks ago it was Career and Technical Education day at the State Capitol. This is one of my favorite days of the year as CTE students and teachers from around the State set up displays and share information about their programs. It is great to see the variety of programs being offered but even better to see the excitement and enthusiasm students have for their learning and their future plans. This week, let's discuss course offerings for students and ways that learning is being made more relevant in your classrooms.

This Week's Questions:

  1. What percentage of your students are enrolled in CTE classes? Has participation been an +, - or a flat line?

  2. What programs seem to be growing and where have you seen a decline?

Earlier College Board Score Release for Admins and Students

Congratulations on getting your students and staff through PSAT 8/9, PSAT 10, and SAT testing! The time and effort that you have put into helping deliver opportunity to the students in Michigan is much appreciated.

In case you missed it during the flurry of administering assessments and everything that goes along with spring testing, MDE and the College Board announced that they have moved up their timelines for reporting test scores!

This year, students can expect to receive scores in their College Board account as early as mid-May. Additionally, administrators will have access to student scores in the K-12 reporting portal by late June, once MDE has verified the applicable accountability and data files.
