  • Career and technical education courses must be rigorous and relevant, designed to lead to industrycertification and/or licensure.
  • Humanities and fine arts courses should require studentsto participate in fine arts competitions and performances.
  • Allow more applications-based math, science and English courses to substitute for required courses.
  • Expand opportunities to allow CTE courses to countfor upper academic courses.
  • Provide opportunities and funding for students to enroll in CTE courses earlier than 11th grade.
