Fall 2013 CTE Data Collection CONTINUES

Tuesday, October 29, 2013, 2:24 pm

The Fall 2013 CTE Data Collection began October 1 and ends December 31, 2013.  The Fall CTE Data Collection is a follow-up to last year's Spring CTE Data Collection.  High school students identified as CTE Concentrators last year (2012-2013) and who graduated in the spring of 2013 should be contacted between October 1 and December 31.  All high schools that received funding from the Carl D. Perkins federal grant program in 2012-2013 are required to complete this follow up collection to maintain their eligibility to receive Perkins funding. 

Instructions for completing the Fall 2013 Data Collection--called the 'Quick Reference Guide' for the Fall CTE Data Collection--are located in two places on the OPI website:  on the AIM web page listed in Reports and Data and also on the Secondary CTE web page under the 'Data Collections' tab located at this link:  http://opi.mt.gov/programs/CTAE/CTE.html#gpm1_6.

PLEASE NOTEBe sure to verify the list of CTE Concentrators from what your district submitted last spring.  Any additions, corrections, or changes to the list of CTE Concentrators must be made no later than November 15, 2013, to be accurately reflected in federal reporting and used to compute Perkins Performance Indicators for your school. 

Technical AIM questions regarding the Fall 2013 Data Collection should be directed to the AIM Helpdesk at 1.877.424.6681 (toll-free) or email opiaimhelp@mt.gov.  Questions regarding the Carl D. Perkins federal grant program data requirements should be directed to Diana Fiedler, Perkins Accountability Specialist at 406.444.9019 or email dfiedler@mt.gov.
