CTSO State Fliers

The nine CTSOs have created a set of fliers to help with CTE advocacy in each state.

Each contains a one-page flier for the entire state for senators and governors. The document also includes pages for each congressional district in that state.

All contain the same message just different membership numbers depending on whether it’s listing a state membership or membership for a specific congressional district. You can download them here.

CTE: Learning that works for America

CTE_Logo_RGBThe National Association of State Directors of Career Technical Education Consortium (NASDCTEc), in cooperation with other organizations in the career and technical education (CTE) community, has developed a new logo and slogan for career and technical education.

CTE is learning that works for America: employers, community leaders, economic development professionals, schools and colleges, policy makers, students, parents, and local economies. For all of us, CTE is having a profound and positive impact on America.

Equally important, NASDCTEc has gathered the facts and developed the messaging for CTE advocacy. Appearing below is the general brochure and five of the fact sheets.

  • CTE Brochure: Learning That Works for America
  • CTE Fact Sheet: Enrollment
  • CTE Fact Sheet: College and Career Opportunities
  • CTE Fact Sheet: Student Achievement
  • CTE Fact Sheet: Preparing Students in Areas of Job Growth
  • CTE Fact Sheet: High Expectations, High Outcomes
