Opportunity to provide input on K12 Career & Technical Education
In today’s economy, it has never been more important for business and education to work together to build tomorrow’s workforce. Here’s a chance to do just that. The Department of Public Instruction (DPI) has announced its intent to review and potentially revise the existing standards that guide career and technical education. It is critical that we take into consideration industry input regarding the existing standards.
- Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources Survey
- Business and Information Technology Survey
- Family and Consumer Sciences Survey
- Health Science Survey
- Marketing, Management, and Entrepreneurship Survey
- Technology and Engineering Survey
Please take the survey that best represents your industry. Each subject-specific survey includes questions on Wisconsin’s Common Career Technical Standards (WCCTS). The WCCTS provide a foundation on which the subject-specific standards are built. These employability or “future-ready”skills are founded on social-emotional learning, global competence, STEM skills, and digital literacy skills and include the following.
- Creativity, critical thinking, communication, and collaboration
- Career development
- Environment, health, and safety
- Global and cultural awareness
- Information, media, and technology
Your input is valued so that DPI makes a decision about these standards that makes sense for Wisconsin students, educators, and employers. Information about the standards review process can be found on DPI's Academic Standards webpage. See this flowchart for a summary of the process.
