  • Incorporates challenging state academic standards
  • Addresses academic, technical, and employability skills
  • Aligns with the needs of industries in the state, regional, and/or local economy
  • Progresses in specificity, beginning with all aspects of industry and leading to more occupation specific instruction
  • Has multiple entry and exit points that incorporate credentialing
  • Culminates in the attainment of a recognized postsecondary credential
