The Secondary Career Pathways Funding was established by the Oregon Legislature through HB 3072. This is a first attempt at a sustained funding source for Career and Technical Education (CTE). It is intended that the funds allocated through this program will incentivize intensive CTE Programs of Study that lead to high wage and high demand occupations.


The allocations are based on students enrolled in the prior school year who earned three or more credits in an approved CTE Program of Study that leads to a high wage and high demand occupation.  Additional funds are allocated for students earning three or more credits if they are also either historically underserved students or have earned an industry-recognized credential.  The awards, made to the school district, range from $2,000 to $45,000. The official award letters will go out this week.

The allocations have been calculated and will be available on a reimbursement basis through the Electronic Grants Management System (EGMS) after meeting the following two conditions:


1.    Submit the statement of assurances signed by district superintendent or designee.

2.    Submit the budget narrative and worksheet for approval.

Please visit the Secondary Career Pathways Funding website to download forms and to view allocations.
