Data tells a story. It paints a picture reflecting strengths and opportunities. It can reveal the unexpected and affirm what appears evident in our classrooms, schools, and communities. Career and Technical Education emphasizes making data-driven decisions to best serve students, schools, communities, and workforce development needs. Thoroughly and accurately collecting CTE data is the foundation of knowing and using the information for sound decision making. The following sections provide instruction, training, and assistance to accomplish these tasks.



Districts are required to complete an annual CTE program consultation with the DOE Division of Career and Technical Education in conjunction with the SD-CLNA to maintain their program approval status. DCTE Regional Specialists will guide districts through this process on a one on one basis. There are three basic elements of this process outside of the consultation itself. Please follow up with your district’s regional specialist for further guidance and instructions.

Please use the link for the CTE region your district belongs to. Check which region your district is in.
