ACTEA advocates that Career and Technical Education is a fundamental solution and vehicle for education reform.
The Association of Career and Technical Education Administrators (ACTEA) is a non-profit organization that consists of New York State Career & Technical Education administrators. Selected administrators serve on ACTEA’s board to promote and monitor Career and Technical initiatives in New York State.
ACTEA represents the needs and interests of Career & Technical Education (CTE) programs, staff and students. ACTEA also helps set standards and advocate for CTE. They identify and analyze data with the State Education Department (SED) to determine student outcomes as well as request specific action from SED. ACTEA aids in setting instructional standards for all NYS approved CTE programs through on-going work in curriculum development. ACTEA also exists in order to maintain professional standards among educators involved in various aspects of Career and Technical Education in New York State.
ACTEA cooperates with the Association for Career and Technical Education, New York State Association of Career and Technical Educators, and any other professional group with objectives compatible to those of ACTEA, Inc.
