In efforts to develop a Career and Technical Education Program of Study (CTE POS) cluster within the Oregon Department of Education, the Oregon Aviation Programs of Study Committee, asks county officials to complete a brief survey to assist in compiling an inventory of current aviation programs offered throughout the state. The survey can be completed here.
The 16-member committee, created in 2019, brings together educators and experts in k-12 and postsecondary education as well as industry leaders committed to advancing aviation education opportunities in Oregon.
Oregon CTE POS would open up doors for this program area. A CTE POS creates a sequence of courses, aligned to industry standards at the secondary and postsecondary level and integrates technical and career skill proficiencies with academic content. Students leave a CTE POS prepared to enter the workplace, further education, training, and/or community roles. Programs of study approved by the state are eligible to use federal Carl D. Perkins funding to advance student performance.
The committee is working over the next year to compile information necessary to move forward in the Oregon CTE POS application process.
