CTE Concentrator Calculation

On this page


This report lists students that have successfully completed or are projected to complete an approved Career Pathway. Career Clusters™ are groupings of occupations used as an organizing tool for curriculum design and instruction. The Career Cluster approach makes it easier for students to understand the relevance of their required courses and helps them select their elective courses. Career Pathways are sub-groupings of occupations within a Career Cluster used as an organizing tool for curriculum design and instruction. Occupations are grouped into career pathways based on common knowledge and skills required for career success. A Concentrator is a student that has successfully completed a Concentrator course in an approved Career Pathway. A Concentrator Course is a second or third-level course in the Career Pathway that builds upon technical skills acquired in a prerequisite course.
