Grants to New Mexico public school districts, district chartered high schools, and state-chartered high schools to support career-focused STEM study programs. Highest priority will be placed on new programs that align with the requirements of Next Gen CTE pilot programs.

The Next Gen CTE pilot will allocate funds to the development of new CTE opportunities, either directly through the establishment of new programs of study, or through those educational activities that provide the foundation for successful career preparation. A fundable program of study must include, at minimum, two high school CTE courses plus an aligned capstone course. A capstone may be either dual credit, Advanced Placement, a credentialing course, or credit-bearing work-based learning.

Priority will be given to rural LEAs that do not currently receive CTE funding through the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act (federal funds).

The New Mexico Public Education Department (PED) will evaluate applications for quality and impact, using a structured evaluation rubric. Extra points will be awarded for those applications that most closely align with New Mexico’s economic development priorities. Recipients may use funding to pay for CTE course development including curriculum, teacher training, teacher certifications, classroom equipment, and consumable supplies.

Funding is also available for activities that support CTE without requiring a complete program of study. The funds include career exploration activities for students, and programs that develop soft skills. LEAs can propose traditional instructional methods, work-based learning programs, or online training. As mentioned in the Detailed Instructions, LEAs still need to identify a potential CTE pathway, including specific careers that are available in New Mexico, local employers that will provide advice, and a postsecondary pathway.

Funding may be obtained for any of the following initiatives:

  1. New program(s) of study
  2. Soft skills training provided by a Career Technical Student Organization (CTSO), or via an online training platform
  3. Guided career exploration for middle school and/or high school students
  4. Online support/programming for integrating Algebra and Geometry standards into CTE coursework
  5. Teacher preparation for existing CTE instructors to become qualified to provide dual credit instruction
  6. Work-based learning (WBL)
