  1. Each student enrolled in vocational and technical education, grades 9-12, will have a career development plan (CDP)1 on file which includes academic and vocational and technical education courses appropriate for his or her designated career goal.
  2. If the enrollment of members of special populations in any vocational and technical education program area differs more than a third from the overall special populations percentage enrolled in all vocational and technical education programs in that school, the enrollment must be justified by documentation of student choices as evidenced by the career development plan (CDP).
  3. Eighty percent of all students completing each vocational and technical education course will have mastered 80% of the core competencies designated on the statewide course blueprint.*
  4.  Eighty percent of all students completing each Level I or non-sequenced vocational and technical education course will have gained a minimum of 60% of the difference between the pretest score and the total possible posttest score as measured by valid pretests and posttests of all core competencies designated on the statewide course blueprint.*

  5. Eighty percent of all students completing each Level II vocational and technical education course will have gained a minimum of 40% of the difference between the pretest score and the total possible posttest score as measured by valid pretests and posttests of all core competencies designated on the statewide course blueprint.*

  6. Seventy percent of all vocational and technical education completers as reported by program area for each school will enter further training or education, including that received in the military or on-the-job.

  7. The completer unemployment rate for those students seeking full-time employment will be lower than the county's youth unemployment rate as reported by job skills-related program areas by school.

  8. Of completers finding full-time employment, 70% as reported by job skill program areas by school will be employed in jobs related to their vocational programs.
