  1. How does your school incorporate various types of work-based learning (including: industry sponsored projects, service learning, school-based enterprises, internships, etc.) within the curriculum?
  2. Does your school have a formal process to collect employer input on curriculum and program development/improvement?
  3. Are your school’s instructional staff and counselors informed about work-based learning opportunities?
  4. Are you encouraging teachers to serve as Career and Technical Student Organization (CTSO) advisors?
  5. Does your school support educators to participate in company visits, professional learning or skills training, or teacher externships?
  6. How does your school strategically recruit employers to expand work-based learning opportunities?
  7. How is information about career & technical education programs shared with middle school teachers, counselors, students and their families?
  8. What steps are you taking to ensure that your CTE programs are academically rigorous and offer high-wage, in-demand, industry-recognized credentials?
