New Mexico Public Education Department: Next Gen CTE
The Next Gen CTE Pilot will support Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) in the cost of starting new Career Technical Education (CTE) programs of study that lead to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) proficiency. The goal of this funding is to provide high school students the opportunity to enroll in high-quality, STEM-focused CTE courses. CTE coursework is part of an articulated program of study offered by an LEA and a partner higher education institution, which leads enrolled students toward a postsecondary degree or certificate.
The Next Gen CTE pilot will allocate funds to the development of new CTE opportunities, either directly through the establishment of new programs of study, or through those educational activities that provide the foundation for successful career preparation. A fundable program of study must include, at minimum, two high school CTE courses plus an aligned capstone course. A capstone may be either dual credit, Advanced Placement, or work-based learning.
Amount: LEAs interested in receiving state funding for CTE programs must submit this Request for Information (RfI) before completing an application. Budgets will be determined during the application phase.
Eligibility: Public school districts (including district chartered high schools) and state chartered high schools that demonstrate a commitment to providing students the opportunity to participate in career technical education.
