Career Technical Instruction (CTI)
The Career and Technical Instruction (CTI) support service is designed to support students with disabilities enrolled in Career Pathways classes. The goal of the secondary (grades 9-12) level services is to provide these students with job-entry skills at the completion of the Career Pathways experience. The role of the career and technical instruction coordinator is to provide resource assistance to students with disabilities served under the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) in the Career Pathways program and to coordinate the services needed for the learner to acquire his/her goal of job placement.
Students who receive support services are students who receive special education services under the requirements of IDEA. These students are eligible for services under one or more of the following disability categories: Mildly or moderately intellectually disabled, specific learning disabled, emotionally and behaviorally disordered, speech/language impaired, visually impaired, other health impaired, orthopedically impaired, deaf and hard of hearing or autism.

Work-Based Learning (WBL) Opportunities
Work-Based Learning (WBL) represents the pinnacle of the Career Pathway experience. To qualify for a WBL placement, a student must be in grades 11 or 12 and at least 16 years-old. Students must also have a defined Career Pathway in order to participate in the WBL component of their career pathway. This is especially important for successful completion of a student’s pathway in that the student’s job placement is directly related to the curriculum of the Career Pathways classes completed or currently enrolled. Opportunities for work-based learning include Youth Apprenticeship (YAP), Cooperative Education, Internship and Clinical Experiences. Coordinator recommendation is required for all WBL placements.
