Career & Technical Education Audit

On January 30, 2019 Governor Ron DeSantis issued Executive Order 19-31 (PDF) that charts a course for Florida to become number 1 in the nation for workforce education by 2030.

Executive Order 19-31 (PDF) directs Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran to audit career and technical education (CTE) offerings in the state and develop a methodology to audit and review offerings annually. The audit should include:

  • An analysis of alignment with certificate or degree programs offered at the K-12 and postsecondary levels;
  • An analysis of alignment with professional level industry certifications;
  • An analysis of alignment with high-growth, high-demand and high wage employment opportunities; and
  • A review of student outcomes such as academic achievement, college readiness, postsecondary enrollment, credential attainment and attainment of industry certifications.

To accomplish the goals and vision of the Governor’s executive order, FDOE is working with CareerSource Florida, the Department of Economic Opportunity, the Board of Governors, the Florida College System, school districts and business and industry leaders to ensure CTE offerings are aligned with market demands.
