Principal... I love you but... we must add CTE electives to JH (there are only 30 kids total in a class). I want to have this and this and this and this and... the list goes on...
School districts are eligible to receive weighted* funding for eligible full-time equivalent (FTE) students in approved Career and Technology Education (CTE) programs. In addition to this weighted funding, school districts are also eligible to receive $50 for each FTE student enrolled in two or more advanced CTE courses for three or more credits. These two funding elements determine a district's total CTE allotment. The allotment applies to:
students in grades 9–12 enrolled in CTE programs, and
students with disabilities in grades 7–12 enrolled in Career and Technology for the Disabled (CTED) programs.
For more information, see Texas Education Code: §42.154, Career and Technology Education Allotment.
* Districts receive 35% more funding for CTE students than for regular students
