Administrators Handbook Sec 3.06 (a)
Courses offered in state approved CTE programs must be based on the Colorado Technical Content Standards. Standards, developed through efforts of secondary and postsecondary instructors and validated by business and industry representative, are arranged by cluster and pathway. Instructors and administrators can access the standards on the CTE Standards Website. The database allows for the creation of courses by selection of individual standards and outcomes.

CTE content standards have been aligned to Colorado Academic Standards. Academic alignment was determined by work of CTE instructors and instructors from the individual academic disciplines. Alignment can be added to the completed courses at the end of the outcome selection process.
In some clusters there are also connections between the outcomes and instructional resources designed for presentation of the content. Information can be added to a completed course at the end of the outcome selection.
