This bill makes several changes to regulations of career and technical education districts (CTEDs).

Prohibits a CTED from being assigned an A-F letter grade by the Arizona Department of Education (ADE).

Allows a CTED board to enter into an agreement for administrative, operational and educational services and facilities with a nonprofit organization devoted to vocational training or a public or private postsecondary institution.

  • Specifies the details that must be addressed in a contract between a CTED and an entity in this scenario. 

Expands the class status requirements for dual enrollment admission to a community college to all high school students, rather than only juniors and seniors.

Makes the following changes to the calculation of ADM: 

Specifies that a CTED student generates 1.0 ADM, if the student is a full-time CTED student who is enrolled in one or more courses that meet for at least 600 hours. 

Requires ADM for a CTED student to be calculated by dividing the instructional hours by 600 hours, with the following exceptions:

  • Between 150 hours and 299 hours equals 0.25 ADM
  • Between 300 hours and 449 hours equals 0.5 ADM
  • Between 450 hours and 599 hours equals 0.75 ADM

Specifies that a student enrolled in a CTE course who does not meet the instructional hour criteria generates 0.25 ADM for each course in a fiscal year.

Removes the requirement that a CTED student at a centralized campus enrolled in a course that meets for at least 150 minutes per class period generates 0.75 ADM.

Removes the 0.75 ADM cap on the ADM a CTED student at a leased centralized campus may generate if enrolled in a course that meets for at least 150 minutes per class period.

Specifies that a student in an approved CTED program may generate up to 1.0 ADM on any day of the week and at any time within a fiscal year.

Prescribes that, within a fiscal year, a student enrolled in a CTE course or program generates 0.25 ADM for every five community college credits earned for CTE courses.
