Reminder: Post-High-School Placement Data Survey Period October to December Each Program Year

October 10, 2014

 The CTE Office collects post-high-school placement data on students who have been enrolled in New York State Approved Programs (see www.p12.nysed.gov/cte/ctepolicy/approved.html for a current list of Approved Programs).

As in prior years, post-high-school placement data will be collected on CTE students who reached the concentrator level and left secondary education the previous year.  A survey of students who participated in New York State Approved Programs should take place between October 1, and should be completed by December 31 of each program year.  Placement data collection questions and answers are found at www.p12.nysed.gov/cte/Data/PlacementQ_A.html.

Post-high-school placement data is the only Career and Technical Education (CTE) data element that is reported outside of the Student Information Repository System (SIRS). All other data is now captured through the SIRS (i.e., high school completion and graduation, performance on English Regents, Math Regents, and Technical Skills assessments, program types, membership in special populations and nontraditional student details).

Placement outcome data collection for New York State Approved CTE programs is accomplished through locally developed surveys, (e.g., internet, phone, or paper). To report this data, use the 5S1 spreadsheet Placement Data reporting form. The agency that provided the CTE instruction in the Approved Program is responsible for conducting the survey and submitting the post-high-school placement data on their former CTE students.

Retain a copy of the submitted data for your reference in the event we need to contact you for clarification. Submit your completed MS Excel spreadsheet no later than March 31, 2015 to the email box emsccte@nysed.gov.

Please name your file using the following format: “your school name5S1”

If you have any questions regarding CTE data, please contact Deb Reiter at 518-486-1547 or e-mail Deborah.Reiter@nysed.gov.
