The CTE Student Industry Credential Template serves to record industry certifications earned by students during the reporting year as a direct result of the student’s enrollment within a PDE-approved reimbursable secondary CTE program or registered adult affidavit program reported within the CTE Student Fact Template. Written in the Reporting Engine (RE) Platform.
One record per LEA / School Year/Student ID/Student Location Code/CIP Code/Delivery Method Code/Industry Credential code/Credential Earned Date/Credential Earned Period Level.
Submit this template only if CTE (secondary and/or adult affidavit) program enrollees earned reportable industry certifications.
Selection criteria determine which database records are used in the report.
The report selects which student records to use based on the following criteria:
- The student must not be excluded from state reporting.
- The student must be assigned a CTE Delivery Method code.
- The student must have a school enrollment during the reporting period.
