Career and Technical Education

The State of Alaska Department of Labor and Department of Education and Early Education have partnered with the University of Alaska to create a Career and Technical Education Plan as an umbrella for tech prep, dual credit and apprenticeship pathways for high school students to enter the workforce job-ready with credentials in hand. Plus, they have the opportunity to gain college credit at the same time, which places them further along in obtaining a post-secondary degree in one of fourteen workforce demand areas. Much of this activity is governed by recent developments in Congress and overseen by the Alaska Workforce Investment Board.

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), which replaces No Child Left Behind, provides a formal definition for dual or concurrent enrollment programs as well as for early college high schools. The new authorization (good through 2020) contains language that affects Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act in reporting requirements. The USDE’s Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education (OCTAE) will be releasing updated guidance for states to reflect these changes.

The following documents represent general agreements between the university and school districts and articulation agreements for tech prep courses using non-university instruction but can be placed on a student transcript as university credit. Much of the work that makes this possible is coordinated through the University of Alaska Transition Coalition, providing an operational framework for approving both secondary courses and instructors aligned with post-secondary learning outcomes. All these efforts represent a dedication to workforce development and student opportunities to fulfill those needs.
