NEVADA CTE CURRICULUM FRAMEWORK2014INTRODUCTIONThe Nevada CTE Curriculum Frameworks are a resource for Nevada’s public and charter schools to design,implement, and assess their CTE programs and curriculum. The content standards identified in this documentare listed as a model for the development of local district programs and curriculum. They represent rigorousand relevant expectations for student performance, knowledge, and skill attainment which have been validatedby industry representatives.The intent of this document is to provide a resource to districts as they develop and implement CTE programsand curricula.This program ensures the following thresholds are met: The CTE course and course sequence teaches the knowledge and skills required by industrythrough applied learning methodology and, where appropriate, work-based learningexperiences that prepare students for careers in high-wage, high-skill and/or high-demandfields. Regional and state economic development priorities shall play an important role indetermining program approval. Some courses also provide instruction focused on personaldevelopment.The CTE course and course sequence includes leadership and employability skills as anintegral part of the curriculum.The CTE course and course sequence are part of a rigorous program of study and includesufficient technical challenge to meet state and/or industry-standards.The CTE program components include the following items: Program of StudyState Skill StandardsEmployability Skills for Career Readiness StandardsCareer Technical Student Organizations (CTSO)Curriculum FrameworkCTE Assessments: Workplace Readiness Skills Assessment End-of-Program Technical AssessmentCertificate of Skill AttainmentCTE Endorsement on a High School Diploma CTE College CreditReleased: 11/06/2014Interior Design1
