Beyond the Numbers: A Toolkit for Communicating CTE Data

Beyond the Numbers: A Toolkit for Communicating CTE Data

In March 2020, Advance CTE and the Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE) convened a Shared Solutions Workgroup of state and national experts to explore strategies for effective Career Techincal Education (CTE) data reporting and communication. Over a series of meetings, the workgroup co-designed a set of tools and resources to help states improve their CTE data reporting.

This toolkit contains guidance, best practices and tools that CTE leaders can use to create communications that help stakeholders better understand and act on CTE data. The primary audience for the toolkit is state leaders, but district and K-12 or postsecondary institution leaders may also be able to use these resources for the CTE data communications. 

The tools and templates in the toolkit can be accessed below: 

*Note: The one-pager templates have been created in Adobe InDesign and Adobe Illustrator. If you do not have InDesign and Illustrator, you can use the templates as models and inspiration for your own tools. 

Check out the companion resource Beyond the Numbers: Design Principles for CTE Data Reporting, to review the workgroup's recommendations for developing effective and accessible CTE data reporting tools.
