Report 3.15 Career Technical Education Participants – Student List

(Updated as of 6/4/2021)

Description: Lists Career Technical Education (CTE) Participants and the Pathway they are pursuing, if applicable. Also provides core indicators on these students.

Report Type: ODS and Snapshot / (EOY 1)

Data As Of:

  • If ODS version, user defined
  • If Snapshot version, July 1 – June 30.

Basic selection criteria:

  • Enrollment within the LEA at any time during the Report Period qualifies for selection.
  • Enrollment Status Code = 10, 20, or 30
  • Grade Level = 07-12
  • Student Course Section Completion (SCSC) must map to a state course code that is a CTE course (CRSC Field 9.07 = 7000-8999) for the student to be counted as a participant or completer.

  • Student Data Rules:

  • Data presented are the most recent data associated with the most recent qualifying enrollment at the school during the Report Period, with the following exceptions:

    • A student who has different CTE Pathways at the same school during the Reporting Period should be displayed in each CTE Pathway.

    • A student who has different CTE Pathways for two different schools within the same LEA (no overlapping enrollment) during the Reporting Period should be displayed in each CTE Pathway (display in both schools).

    • A student who has the same CTE Pathway for two different schools within the same LEA (no overlapping enrollment) during the Reporting Period should be displayed only once in the most recently enrolled school.

    • A student may have more than one CTE Pathway Code for the Reporting Year. All SCTEs are examined to determine the number of unique CTE Pathway Codes for each student. For each unique CTE Pathway Code value and where the Enrollment Period overlaps the Reporting Year of the SCTE containing the CTE Pathway Code (Field 11.13) and also the associated CTE Pathway Completion Academic Year ID.
    • Student Program (SPRG) data are selected, for each unique Education Program Code, from the most recent SPRG record for the school and SSID that contains that unique Education Program Code (if exists) and with Education Program Membership Start Date and Education Program Membership End Dates (if exists) that overlap a qualifying enrollment at the school during the Report Period, regardless of Education Program Membership Code.

  • Students with Disabilities (IDEA)
  • Foster Youth
  • Education Program
  • Nontraditional Course Enrollment
  • CTE Industry Sector
  • CTE Pathway

NOTE: Default = Y ‘Y’ value indicates that the course is CTE related, the teacher has an appropriate CTE credential, AND that the student reported has a valid SCTE record and a related course completion record

REMINDER: CTE completers do not need the High Quality CTE Course Indicator equal to Y in the course record to appear on the CA Dashboard. All CTE courses will be accounted for in the dashboard. Flagging a course with High Quality CTE Course Indicator equal to Y is only needed if the LEA is receiving Perkins funding, which requires CTE courses are taught by CTE credentialed teachers.
