  • Welcome to Moving from Programs of Study to Rigorous Programs of Study in Oklahoma
  • Current definition
  • Programs of Study are more than a Plan of Study, or Individual Career Plan. POS starts at the Cluster level.
  • Programs of Study is a part of school improvement. It is a part of the work done by SREB, mentioned in Pathways to Prosperity and is the new vision for CTE of the National State Directors. It is currently a requirement in Carl Perkins. It is the right thing to do for students regardless of what happens to Perkins funding.
  • Welcome to Moving from Programs of Study to Rigorous Programs of Study in Oklahoma

  • Oklahoma was one of four participants with Minnesota, Kentucky and Guam. Conducted by the National Research Center for CTE at the University of Louisville.
  • We knew that this was an issue. Programs of Study are called Plans of Study, Career Majors, etc.
  • We worked with a researcher from the University of Louisville. The results of the study confirmed that there was confusion.
  • ODCTE will now reference Individual Career Plan, or ICP, instead of Plans of Study.
  • We are conducting the OK Programs of Study Institute this fall.
  • Participants of the OkPOSI
  • All Perkins LEA’s will be invited. The blueprint for Oklahoma’s Programs of Study, and how they will be implemented under Perkins, will be revealed.
