MEMORANDUM

Posted: December 4, 2020 10:44 AM
From: Representative Barbara Gleim
To: All House members
Subject: CTE Certifications on High School Student Transcript (Former HB1315)
 
In the near future, I plan to re-introduce legislation that requires the inclusion of Career Technical Education (CTE) certifications on a student’s High School transcript, if that student took a National Occupational Competency Testing Institute (“NOCTI”) or Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE) test and obtained a certification through a state qualified Vocational Technical School. All across the state, high schools acknowledge whether a student took an honors or AP class on a student’s transcript, while CTE students spend three or four years studying to earn a certification, with no acknowledgement of that success.

Specifically, beginning in the 2020-2021 school year, each school entity shall include attained industry-recognized credential(s) on a student’s transcript. In 2016-17, twenty-nine percent (29%) of CTE students earned at least one certification. Employers value these certifications and may give greater consideration (and higher starting pay) to candidates who hold them.

I hope you will join me in co-sponsoring this important legislation.
