  • promoting the development of services and activities that integrate rigorous and challenging academic and technical instruction and link secondary and postsecondary education for participating students
  • developing more fully the academic, vocational, and technical skills of secondary and post-secondary students who elect to enroll in vocational technical education programs
  • promoting leadership and professional development and improves the quality of career and technical education faculty, administrators, and counselors
  • supporting partnerships among educational levels, business and industry, and local advisory boards providing individuals with opportunities throughout their lifetimes to develop the knowledge and skills needed to remain competitive
