5 {College Tech Prep} College tech prep prepares students for the technical occupations of the future. It is an option which combines secondary education and higher education leading to an associate s degree or beyond. College Tech Prep curricula provide advanced competencies in math, science, communication, and technologies. The College Tech Prep program integrates academic, occupational, and employability competencies at all educational levels. Curriculum competencies are designed jointly by local business, industry, and labor representatives in addition to high school teachers and college faculty. The competencies are sequenced to allow a seamless transition from high school to college. By creating a linkage between technical and academic education, College Tech Prep trains individuals who are adaptable, with the ability to acquire new skills, cross-train and retrain as technology advances. Projects will require students to use their academic, technical, and interpersonal skills to successfully complete their tasks as they would on the job. Teachers integrate technology into the curriculum to provide real-world applications to academic subjects. The Butler Technology and Career Development Schools belong to both the Greater Cincinnati and Miami Valley College Tech Prep consortia. This gives students added flexibility in choosing which postsecondary institution they wish to attend as well as which area of study they wish to pursue. Minimum enrollment recommendations Completed college prep algebra with a C or better Completed college prep science with a C or better 2.0 G.P.A.

(CT) 2 is a collaborative effort among the Ohio Board of Regents and the Office of Career-Technical Education of the Ohio Department of Education, public secondary/adult career-technical education institutions, and state-supported institutions of higher education. Under the guidance of the State (CT) 2 Advisory Committee, the articulation and transfer initiative established criteria, policies, and procedures, whereby students are awarded college credit for agreed-upon technical knowledge and skills in equivalent courses/programs that are based on recognized industry standards. When students are able to obtain this credit as they go on to college, it saves students time and money, and Ohio business and industry benefits from more employees with advanced skills. Those who would like to read more about (CT) 2 can go to the following website: It is important for students, parents, counselors and instructors to read the Career-Technical Assurance Guide for the program area in which they have an interest to understand the requirements for the credit to be articulated, as it is different for each program area depending on the major area of study. New this year is the need for a special (CT) 2 transcript to accompany the regular school transcript to the colleges a student may want to attend. Please see your counselor or teacher for more information. Programs that have opportunities for Career-Technical Transfer Credit are noted with a (CT) 2 in the program guide. Note that updates to program eligibility can occur during the school year. Please note that programs may have additional Tech Prep agreements or independent articulation agreements that would enable students meeting requirements to receive more college credit. Please see individual course descriptions for those programs and locations which are (CT) 2 approved. REDEFINING EDUCATION 5
