 Part 1: Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP Codes)
The New Jersey Department of Education, Office of Career and Technical Education (OCTE) uses the National Standard
of Educational Statistics Districts’ Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) to describe CTE programs and programs
of study. The CIP provides a taxonomic scheme that supports the accurate tracking and reporting of fields of study and
program completions activity.

 Before completing this program re-approval application, districts are encouraged to complete the following steps:

     (1) Identify the program’s current CIP code and career cluster pathway by looking up the district’s list of approved
     programs on the NJDOE website at http://www.nj.gov/education/voc/pubvoc.htm

     (2) Confirm that the current program CIP code is appropriate by looking up the current CIP code program description
     at http://nces.ed.gov/ipeds/cipcode/Default.aspx?y=55. If the CIP program description is substantially equivalent to
     the district’s CTE program, then this is the correct CIP under which to apply for re-approval.

     (3) If the CIP code description is not substantially equivalent to district’s current CTE program offering, the district
     will consider doing one of the following:

            Realign the current CTE program to be substantially equivalent to the CIP code program description, or

            List the proposed CTE Program/Program of Study name and CIP 2010 code that more accurately describes
             the program that the district is offering. The proposed CIP Code and program must be in the same career
             cluster as the present program. NOTE: Changing CIP codes and CTE Program/Program of Study will
             require you to examine teacher certification to ensure that teachers hold the appropriate certification for
             proposed CTE program.

            Submit a new program approval using a more appropriate CIP code description.


 If the district is unsure of an appropriate CIP code for the program application, contact the district’s State Perkins Program
 Officer for assistance.

           APPROVAL AND RE-APPROVAL OF CAREER AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION
     PROGRAMS AND PROGRAMS OF STUDY FOR NEW JERSEY SCHOOL DISTRICTS / AGENCIES


                                   - INTRODUCTION AND BACKGROUND -

A New Jersey school district, state agency, approved charter school, or an approved private school for students with
disabilities intending to continue to offer a CTE program or program of study, and that seeks to place or supervise
students in apprenticeship training or cooperative education experiences, and/or apply for or receive Carl D. Perkins funds
to support the CTE program or program of study, must develop the CTE program or program of study while meeting the
requirements established by the New Jersey Department of Education, and must apply to the department for re-approval
of the CTE program or program of study every five years.
Address each of the applicable parts that are included in the Application for Re-approval of Career and Technical
Education Programs and Programs of Study. Provide only the information requested.
New Jersey Department of Education’s Office of Career and Technical Education (OCTE) has developed a revised
framework of career and technical education that is detailed in the Five-Year Plan for Career and Technical Education
2008-2013 at http://www.nj.gov/education/voc/perkins/5year/stateplan.pdf . The core of this framework is a strong
academic component to ensure that all students have a broad, relevant, and rigorous education to help them develop a
vision for their future that will afford them flexibility in their later career and educational choices. This academic core is
coupled with a strong technical skills training component to allow students the opportunity to further develop competence
and to best express their unique interests and talents. Together, the rigorous academic core and high-level technical skills
component focused on bettering our world will help students build character to help them successfully meet the increasing
demands of our challenging global social and economic times.

The framework of New Jersey Career and Technical Education includes Career and Technical Education Programs and
Programs of Study. The Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Improvement Act of 2006 (Perkins IV; P.L.
109-270) required states to describe the Career and Technical Education Programs and Programs of Study that may be
adopted by local education agencies and postsecondary institutions to be offered as an option to students.

A CTE program consists of a coherent sequence of academic and career and technical courses designed to provide
students with the industry-based skills and academic knowledge needed to gain employment in a particular occupation or
career area, or to pursue postsecondary education and training.

A CTE program of study consists of a coherent sequence of academic and career and technical courses designed to
provide students opportunities to earn industry-recognized credentials or certificates at the secondary or postsecondary
level, and/or an associate or baccalaureate degree related to the focus of the program of study. CTE programs of study
include the following specific features, according to the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Improvement
Act and the Five-Year Plan for Career and Technical Education 2008-2013:
         Incorporate secondary education and postsecondary education elements;
         Includes coherent and rigorous content, aligned with challenging academic standards, and relevant career and
          technical content in a coordinated, non-duplicative progression of courses that align secondary education with
          postsecondary education to adequately prepare students to succeed in postsecondary education;
         May include the opportunity for secondary education students to participate in dual or concurrent enrollment
          programs or other ways to acquire postsecondary education credits; and
         Leads to an industry-recognized credential or certificate at the secondary or postsecondary level, or an associate
          or baccalaureate degree.

CTE programs of study must have a current articulation agreement or memorandum of understanding (MOU) between a
secondary and postsecondary institution that is signed annually by the chief administrators of those institutions.

                                                              4                                                1/13/2011 6:59 AM
                                  CTE PROGRAM RE-APPROVAL APPLICATION

The term articulation agreement as defined in the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Improvement Act
means a written commitment —
    (A) That is agreed upon at the State level or approved annually by the lead administrators of —
        (i) A secondary institution and a postsecondary educational institution; or
        (ii) A sub-baccalaureate degree granting postsecondary educational institution and a baccalaureate degree granting
             postsecondary educational institution; and
    (B) To a program that is —
        (i) Designed to provide students with a non-duplicative sequence of progressive achievement leading to technical
             skill proficiency, a credential, a certificate, or a degree; and
        (ii) Linked through articulation agreements between two institutions described in clause (i) or (ii) of subparagraph
             (A) (as the case may be).

CTE programs of study must include opportunities for students to earn college credit for completing the secondary
portion of the program of study. Types of college credit to be included in a CTE program of study:

    1) Articulated Credit- AC: The term ―articulated credit‖ refers to the college credits students earn for successfully
       completing a college course that are ―banked‖ at the community college until the student enrolls in a program at
       the community college. After students complete additional college requirements, students receive the college
       credit; or,

    2) Dual Credit-DC/Concurrent Credit: Students simultaneously earn both credits towards high school graduation
       requirements, and college credits for successfully completing a college course.


Part 2: Enrollment Data
The CTE program/program of study’s enrollment data (CTE program participants, concentrators, and completers;) see the
Five-Year         Plan       for       Career         and        Technical      Education          FY        2008-2013        at
http://www.nj.gov/education/voc/perkins/5year/stateplan.pdf (see page 133 for definitions) for the last three years of approved
CTE program’s operation will be reviewed by the Office of Career and Technical Education (OCTE), and the district
may be asked to provide clarification on this data prior to program re-approval.

Part 3: Determining Need for the CTE Program or Program of Study
Districts must support the need for a CTE program or program of study by presenting labor market data that indicates a
labor market need. Districts may determine labor market need using any of the sources listed below. Check the source
