The process for renewing CTE-26 applications has transitioned to renewal based on expiration of the approved program application. The program renewal chart will no longer be used. Career-Technical Education (CTE) program approval will now be focused around the approval window of the program application rather than program. Approved CTE programs are valid for five consecutive fiscal years. Renewal application approval shall be subject to review under ORC. 3317.161 section (E).

Local districts will submit renewal applications for programs that are in the last fiscal year of the current approved application as indicated by the CTE-26 System. For example, programs with approval for period FY2017-FY2021 will renew by March 1, 2021 allowing programs to remain effective FY2022-2026. Please refer to the current approval period for your program as indicated in the CTE-26 System.
