What Makes an Exemplary Program?
The Exemplary Programs project sought to identify and share information about those career and technical programs that are truly exemplary. Through our work with the National Advisory Committee, we have identified the critical components of high-quality career and technical education programs, solicited nominations from state leaders for exemplary designation, and evaluated programs on their evidence of effectiveness of program quality, educational significance, and potential for replicability. During the first year of this five-year project, we were very pleased to identify four programs at the high school level that met the criteria for exemplary programs.
