State Strategies for Financing Career and Technical Education

Student-based Formulas (AY2011–12)

The most commonly used approach for distributing state CTE funds is to condition allocations on the number of students enrolling in CTE programs. A total of 21 states used one of three student-based approaches: making pro-rata distributions based on levels of student participation, weighting CTE participants more heavily in state k–12 education formula allocations, or establishing differential weights for students based on their type or level of program involvement.
