KACTE is the legislative voice for Career and Technical Education (CTE) at the state and federal levels.
KACTE is the independent information source on CTE, with programs planned, directed and implemented by Career and Technical educators.
KACTE is the professional association for ALL CTE, with members at all instructional levels (middle schools, high schools, secondary career and technology centers, technical and community colleges, and universities), and at the Kentucky Department of Education and the Kentucky Community and Technical College System administrative office. KACTE members represent every program area discipline in CTE.
The theme for KACTE's 2013-14 program year under the leadership of President Doris Sikora, Ph.D., is KACTE's new tag line: Inspiring, Advocating, Leading. KACTE's goals for 2013-14 are:
INSPIRING teachers to be the best they can be;
INSPIRING CTE professionals to guide students for a fast-paced, changing world;
ADVOCATING to administrators and legislators the importance of CTE;
ADVOCATING to students and parents that CTE can open doors, the sky is the limit;
LEADING in the promotion of Career and Technical Education; and
To be the LEADING professional organization for ALL CTE Professionals.
