Advance CTE Career Clusters Framework Initiative

Twenty years ago, the states and key stakeholders built and launched The National Career Clusters® Framework (The Framework). The Framework has been used in myriad ways by many different stakeholders. While The Framework once reflected the realities of the world of work, it is time to modernize The Framework’s structure and design to ensure its relevance for the current and future needs of every learner, at all levels, and of the workplace.

Career-Technical Articulation Verification (CTAV) Project

The Ohio departments of Education and Higher Education, through the Career-Technical Articulation Verification (CTAV) project, are improving students’ chances of receiving postsecondary transfer credit for qualified career-technical education courses by sharing course completion and assessment data in EMIS. To guarantee students receive those credits, districts must include students’ SSIDs on their transcripts.

The steps are simple: 

  1. Review your district’s student transcript form to make sure it complies with Ohio law by including each student’s SSID.

  2. If your transcripts do not show SSIDs, develop a process for making them available to your vendor, so colleges and universities receive an SSID on each student’s transcript. 

  3. Submit students’ WebXam scores in EMIS as early in the assessment period as possible, so colleges and universities can confirm your students received scores that qualify them for transfer credits. 

Qualified students whose transcripts include their SSIDs will be flagged for transfer credit, without having to request it, when they enroll in postsecondary institutions. 

For more information on the Career-Technical Articulation Verification project, contact Ryan Curtis in the Department of Education’s Office of Career Technical Education at (614) 369-4061 or

Postsecondary transfer credits empower students to make informed decisions about their futures, including the potential for attending Ohio higher education institutions. They also save students and their families time and the cost of repeating courses.

CTE-26 And Quality Program Review Updates

The Office of Career-Technical education and other offices at the Ohio Department of Education have been working to prepare the data for the opening of the CTE-26 system and the release of the Quality Program Review data. The CTE-26 system is currently scheduled to open on December 1st at this time, and we will continue to provide more updates as that time draws nearer. As a reminder, program renewals will now be based on when the current program approvals expire. With this in mind, the only applications for this year should be new applications, or applications for renewals that were missed last year or prior.

The Quality Program Review data should be available in the system in mid-November. Unforeseen circumstances have caused a delay in the processing of that data, but we expect to have those resolved shortly.

Quality Program Review workshops will continue as scheduled for the dates below in December. These dates mirror what was shared at the Ohio Career-Technical Administrator’s Fall Conference. Signups are now open for these dates at a regional level for both years 3 and 4. Though the final data is not live, the data for this year is from the graduating class of 2018, so local programs have the ability to be proactive regarding their compliance status for this year. If you are not sure of your expected status, please reach out to staff in the Office of Career-Technical Education.

Year 3 workshops will remain voluntary, but Year 4 workshops will be required for programs in that step of the process. Please sign up for the workshop that most fits your region first, but if not able to make it to that date, feel free to sign up for workshops in other regions.

As programs that attended last year will share, this can be an incredibly helpful process and we highly recommend bringing everyone who has a direct effect on the program, including instructors, administrators, and EMIS coordinators.

The new dates for the Quality Program Review workshops are open for registration in STARS.  If you and members of your staffs are interested in attending you must access OH|ID account system at: OH|ID Portal and select STARS to register.
