New CTE Resources

The Career and Technical Education (CTE), Texas Education Agency (TEA), contract for the maintenance of this website will end on August 31st, 2017. Some CTE materials housed on this site may no longer be available after August.

The CTE Division, TEA, is currently conducting a project to evaluate the CTE resources on this site (and several other grantee sites) to determine which existing resources will migrate to a new Open Educational Resources (OER) site, the Texas CTE Resource Center. The new Texas CTE Resource Center site is expected to launch in early August 2017.

Nationally and locally developed rubrics are being used to ensure that migrating content is current, relevant, and focused on important CTE outcomes. With the implementation of the new Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) for Texas CTE courses, that become effective with the 2017-2018 school year, all resources will need review and alignment. As a result of this review, only selected existing materials will migrate to the new site.

Starting in the next school year, the TEA CTE team will reach out to local CTE specialists, teachers, counselors, and administrators for their help with identification of instructional and professional development resources that are high need, so that we have guidance for new content development and publishing in the Texas CTE Resource Center site.

Additional information will be forthcoming over the summer.
