The Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act (Perkins V) requires each state to develop a four-year plan for CTE. The Division of Career and College Readiness collaborated with stakeholder groups to revise the vision for CTE and develop the Maryland CTE Four-Year State Plan. The vision for CTE in Maryland is for each student to have access and opportunity to engage in career programs of study that:
The Maryland CTE Four-Year State Plan will guide the strategic direction for CTE in Maryland for the next four years. Maryland's four-year plan was approved by the US Department of Education in April 2020.
Funding to support CTE programs of study will be provided to local school systems, community colleges, Juvenile Services Education System, Adult Correctional Education System, and other affiliates in alignment with state plan priorities and federal law requirements.
