Course approval requests for new courses for the second semester are due no later than October 15 of each year. Please see below for more information on the course approval and re-approval process.

The review of Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses is ongoing for the re-approval process. The purpose of this process is to make certain that all CTE courses:

  • Ensure academic rigor.
  • Align with the state’s education reform requirements, including the Washington State Learning Standards.
  • Help address the skills gap of Washington’s economy.
  • Maintain strong relationships with local CTE advisory councils for the design and delivery of career and technical education.
  • Align with current industry standards.

Re-approval of specific program areas will be completed based on the schedule below. The deadline for submitting re-approval information is January 31st for each school year. All CTE courses from districts with CTE programs must be re-approved.
