CTE students

Programs of Study

  • Texas Education Agency engaged members of workforce, secondary education, and higher education to develop the programs of study.

    The new programs of study include coherent sequences of courses, industry-based certifications, and work-based learning opportunities to ensure students are prepared for in-demand, high-skill, high-wage careers in Texas.


    The proposed programs of study go into effect for the 2020-2021 school year and will allow Texas to meet the federal program approval requirements within the Strengthening CTE for the 21st Century Act (Perkins V).


    Belton ISD is implementing 11 Career Clusters and 24 Programs of Study.
