The after high school activities of CTE concentrators is captured by Placement Surveys. Placement surveys are required for all active programs at a school that has had at least one approved program for three or more years. If an established program runs for four consecutive years without a placement, it will be considered unapproved for state funding purposes. Failure to submit placement data will impact state funding. Placement data is also used in performance measure 3S1 – Placement.
