ACTE Releases Paper on How Career, Technical Student Organizations Expand Career Readiness for Students
Date:7/6/2011

ipate in school organizations in 10th grade have higher high school grade point average and are more likely to be enrolled in college at 21 than other students.

Students participating in CTSOs learn contextualized academic instruction and have the opportunity to work in settings where the career skills learned in the classroom can be utilized. Each CTSO offers students a chance to explore career-related tasks aligned with state academic standards. By participating in these organizations, students are able to develop leadership, teamwork, creativity and technical skills.

"CTSOs provide students a unique opportunity to explore their career interests and learn the employability and technical skills necessary to be career-ready," said ACTE Executive Director Jan Bray. "Unfortunately, the cut to federal Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act (Perkins Act) funding in the FY 2011 budget will impede student CTSO opportunities. In order to keep America's economy moving forward, it's critical that we continue to invest in CTE. We need to increase the number of students graduating from high school and postsecondary institutions that have the education and skills to fill the pipeline of workers business and industry need."

CTSOs encourage students to continue their career-path education and assume personal responsibility for their own career readiness. The U.S. Congress has specifically authorized CTSOs in the Perkins Act, and they operate as national not-for-profit organizations divided into state associations and local school chapters. Funds from the Perkins Act can be used to support local CTSOs.

There are 11 CTSOs recognized by the Department of Education are: Business Professionals of America, DECA, Family, Career and Community Leaders of America, Future Business Leaders of America&#
