Integration of academic competencies

To ensure all PA Career and Technical Centers meet PDE 339 requirements, integrating academic skills with technical competencies, is a required element of technical instruction. Using the Temple University model of Integrating Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening In-CTE (Career and Technical Education) and the PA PDE Math Council Math T-Charts helps meet these requirements. Both of these models have shown remarkable improvement in students overall PSSA and program proficiency testing scores, and should be an integral component of any CTE curriculum.

The data complied by Penn State and Temple University shows both programs to be very effective in integrating the Pennsylvania academic standards and concepts with vocational education.

More importantly, the reason these programs are successful is because they are not "add-ons" to the current curriculum, but rather are "add-ins"; enhancing program instruction and better fulfilling the needs of our students, local employers and the community.
