The CTE Program Access Map highlights where state-approved career and technical education secondary programs are offered in Michigan and lists local CTE leaders to contact for more information. While some secondary CTE programs are offered at a college or university, this report does not include postsecondary CTE programs.
The data can help us understand the types of career and technical education programs currently available to students. The map lets users search by individual programs to learn which traditional high schools, career/technical centers, and other locations offer them. You can also search by building, district, intermediate school district, city, and/or county to explore local opportunities, as CTE programs are often region-wide services.

The CTE Program Access Map includes CTE administrator phone and e-mail contact information that can be found when users hover over a map point or click on the link to view the “Local CTE Director List.” These Career Education Planning District administrators provide technical assistance, leadership and coordination within a district to state-approved CTE programs. The CEPD administrator may also function as the Local CTE Director. CEPDs are organized to increase cooperation in the planning and implementation of career and technical education programs. There are 53 CEPDs in Michigan.
CTE programs are offered at a variety of locations: traditional high schools, area career technical centers, charter schools, community colleges, four-year universities and even local business locations. If a program isn't offered at an individual high school, there my be an opportunity for a student to attend a program at another location because CTE programs are often district- or ISD-wide. While most CTE programs are taken entirely at the building specified in this report, there could be some aspects of a program, such as work-based learning, that may be offered offsite which is not tracked except if an asterisk appears next to the building name. An asterisk identifies a contracted program, which means the program is offered by the school district but is not available a high school, area technical center, or charter school. Contact your local CTE director for more information. While the map only provides introductory program information, you can find out more about enrollment, performance evaluation, assessment and achievement, and follow up survey details at CTEIS Reports.
