Register for Upcoming NASDCTEc Webinar: States Lead Development of Statewide POS

Register now for an upcoming NASDCTEc webinar: States Lead Development of Statewide POS, where key states share story and their strategies to develop statewide programs of study (POS).

When: The webinar is Tuesday, March 8 at 3 p.m. Eastern Time.

Career technical education programs are dedicated to preparing students to succeed in life and work.  However, exactly how CTE programs prepare students vary and consequently so do students’ levels of success. To encourage consistency and offer the best learning experiences for students, some states are spearheading efforts to build systems structured by commonly-defined programs of study (POS).  

With the help of a technical assistance grant from OVAE, Georgia, Illinois, New Jersey, Ohio and Oregon have made headway in developing POS.  While you can read about each states’ process and progress in a paper NASDCTEc will publish later this week, we are inviting you to participate in a webinar to hear from three of the state team leads. They will illuminate the statewide POS development process by sharing how OVAE’s 10-component framework informed their work and by giving a behind-the-scenes look at one of their milestone achievements. Speakers include:

  • John Pritchett, Georgia: Secondary/postsecondary alignment
  • Brian Durham, Illinois: POS Expectation Tool
  • Tom Thompson, Oregon: Standards-based POS


Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from those who have already begun the development of a statewide model POS. For questions, please contact Emma Heirman, NASDCTEc Special Projects Consultant at
