CTE Cohort Visits This cost covers participant travel reimbursement, one experienced CTE Cohort Team facilitator and summary notes following the visit. We find the Cohort Team members, you schedule the visit at a time that works for you, and we conduct all pre- and post-meeting details.

It is much needed/appreciated!” Click here to see how this aligns with Perkins V PD requirements. $1,500/visit.

Indiana CTE Cohort Visits

Beginning last year, Indiana CTE Directors have the option of requesting a one-day site visit conducted by a cohort of 3-5 veteran CTE Directors to review and discuss their CTE programs and progress.  Site visits are:

  • Completely voluntary
  • Scheduled on a day and time that works best for the CTE Director
  • Supportive, collegial, and confidential – information is for the CTE Director only
  • Focused on sharing ideas, resources, and promising practices with colleagues
  • Operated through IACTED with the support of the Indiana Department of Education

CTE Cohort Visits provide a positive, non-punitive way for CTE Directors to collaborate and discuss a district’s positive practices, areas of concern, answer questions, and explore new ideas. Similar cohort visits, conducted in the past, were well-received and a positive way for Indiana CTE programs to continuously improve. Contact Kelly at to schedule a CTE Cohort Visit in your district.
