CTE Skill Programs follow the same curriculum as their respective CTE Program counter-parts, except at a moderate pace, in a smaller setting with extra support. Students will receive preparation for entry-level employment and/ or post-secondary education and are expected to function autonomously. Transfer into more advanced programs (CTE Programs) is contingent upon a student's success.

Employability Profiles will be utilized to evaluate students' universal foundation skills and work-based technical skills. Districts may utilize the Employability Profile as part of the criteria to meet the Career Development and Occupational Studies (CDOS) Credentials and the CDOS Multiple Pathway option.
