Nebraska Revises Career Education Standards to Better Prepare Students

Posted: Updated:

Course standards for Nebraska's Career Technical Education programs have been revised as a way to make sure students are better prepared for their careers upon graduation.

The standards are used to define what students should know and be able to do to enter college or their chosen career.

The model standards will help participating public school districts organize curriculum into sequences for courses in each of the following career fields: 

  • Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources;
  • Business, Marketing and Management;
  • Communication and Information Systems;
  • Health Sciences;
  • Human Sciences and Education; and
  • Skilled and Technical Sciences.

The CTE course standards were also aligned with the Nebraska's academic standards in reading, writing, mathematics and science. The new career education course standards are available at http://cestandards.education.ne.gov/.

The newly revised standards were also made to flow better with programs offered by the state's two- and four-year colleges.

Students will be able to begin with high school introductory courses that teach broad concepts and skills, progressing to college courses that offer more specific information and develop higher skill levels. Some Nebraska students will have an opportunity to earn college credits while in high school.
