"Next Generation Career and Technical Education in New York City" Final Report and Recommendations of the Mayoral Task Force on Career and Technical Education Innovation. July 2008
Currently, approximately 110,000 students are enrolled in 282 CTE programs of study and in individual CTE elective courses. Twenty-six designated “CTE schools” enroll approximately 30,000 of these students; the remainder attend comprehensive high schools around the city.
In 2001, NYSED introduced a CTE program approval process to foster high quality career and technical education programs. Sixty-eight (68) programs in New York City are currently approved by the State, and reflect elements of enhanced quality and student outcomes. Students completing a State approved program of study are eligible for a technical endorsement on their diploma.

This memo is intended to clarify the eligibility of students for the CTE technical endorsement upon their graduation from a New York City high school. Information also addresses the use of the physical endorsement on a students diploma and the use of ATS codes for appropriately documenting these students upon graduation.
