CTE 23/24 Cluster Review Committee Recommendations for Public Comments

Each Career Cluster Review Committee included representatives from business and industry, post-secondary institutions, and secondary school districts (different sizes of school districts and different geographic regions of Kansas). The Career Cluster Review Committee recommendations will be posted for public comment for thirty (30) days. The Kansas Advisory Committee for Career and Technical Education will receive the Cluster Review recommendations during their April 2024 meeting and will also have the Cluster Review recommendations on the agenda at their June 2024 meeting. The approved Cluster Review changes will go into effect for the 2025-2026 school year.

The National Career Clusters® Framework serves as an organizing tool for Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs, curriculum design and instruction. The National Career Clusters® Framework, Advance CTE, is currently undergoing modernization. Due to the current work being done nationally through Advance CTE to modernize the National Career Clusters® Framework, some items are susceptible to change as the National Career Clusters® Framework is released and work is done to compare the Kansas Career Cluster Framework to the National Career Clusters® Framework.

We look forward to your comments and questions. If you have any questions, please contact Natalie Clark.
