  • Incorporate and align secondary and postsecondary education elements
  • Include academic and CTE content in a coordinated, non-duplicative progression of courses
  • Offer the opportunity, where appropriate, for secondary students to acquire postsecondary credits (Dual-credit)
  • Lead to an industry-recognized credential or certificate at the postsecondary level, or an associate or baccalaureate degree
