Division II - CTE Redesign

Division II revises several sections of Iowa Code, primarily chapter 258 – Vocational Education, but also chapter 256, 260C, and 261E. The six CTE services areas are maintained, but revised to align with the national Career Clusters® framework. The service areas will include agriculture, food, and natural resources; arts, communications, and information systems; applied sciences, technology, engineering, and manufacturing, including transportation, distribution, logistics, architecture, and construction; health sciences; human services; and business, finance, marketing, and management.

Service Areas

Much of chapter 258 is modified to align with Secondary CTE Task Force recommendations. This includes repurposing of a long-dormant concept of regional partnerships, which going forward will be referred to as Regional Career and Technical Education Planning Partnerships. These partnerships will consist of districts, community colleges, business and industry, and other community stakeholders and will assist in providing for the effective, efficient, and economical delivery of high-quality secondary CTE programming.
