Career and Technical Education (CTE) Career Cluster and Program Affiliate Grant

The purpose of the Career and Technical Education (CTE) Career Cluster and Program Affiliate Grant is to assist MSDE in identifying CTE career cluster and program affiliate partners to support the development, implementation, and expansion of CTE programs. CTE career cluster and program affiliates will partner with MSDE to provide professional learning to CTE teachers and administrators, develop content and curricular resources to support CTE programs of study, support the related Career and Technical Student Organization (CTSO), assist in convening the Program Advisory Committee (PAC), offer continuing professional development credits to instructors, and offer articulated and/or transcripted college credit to CTE students.
