Loading District – CTE Transfer Courses

The CTE Transfer Courses upload is used to add high school credited CTE courses taken outside of your LEA that have not been reported to PEIMS by you.

These courses will be added to all CTE courses reported by your LEA to PEIMS across all years in order to more accurately:

  • Compute the Program of Study and CTE Code on the Student Custom Reports>CTE>CTE Coding Summary report
  • Determine if the IBC indicator is met on the CCMR EWS report
  • Review individual student profiles with the additional CTE courses listed on the Summer PEIMS>CTE screen
