State Board members and State Superintendent of Education, Dr. Joe Morton agreed that a plan for creating more support for and having cutting edge programs in Career and Technical Education is essential for the future of Alabama. The Board adopted a resolution on July 12, 2011, creating the Career and Technical Education Commission, with a due date for a report to be no later than December 8, 2011.
The purpose of the CTE Commission is to review the status of high school CTE programs and offerings in Alabama, research the needs of employers in Alabama, then make recommendations to the Alabama Board of Education, the Governor of Alabama, and members of the Alabama Legislature on how to strengthen and support quality CTE programs and initiatives in Alabama public schools, providing high school, two-year, and four-year college graduates with high-quality and sustainable jobs in order to improve Alabama's economic future.
