  3. A New Vision • Career Technical Education will be a primary purpose of the California education system, K-16 and beyond, promoting the state’s economic development, and providing students with the world-class knowledge and skills necessary to become successful and contributing members of society.

  4. New Vision • Career Technical Education will engage every student in high quality, rigorous, and relevant educational pathways and programs, developed in partnership with business and industry, promoting creativity and innovation, allowing students to turn their passion into a paycheck.

  13. Accountability Framework • LEAs falling below 90% on any measure will be considered Needs Improvement Agencies • Required to submit a Program Improvement Plan • Identify planned strategies and activities agency will implement to reach 90% of state levels
