"Outstanding opportunity for personal and professional growth.
Well worth my time.
" — Leadership Academy participant

2015 Leadership Academy Application

The Career Education Leadership Academy is designed to help grow the leadership potential of Nebraska Career Educators.  A key objective of the Leadership Academy is to create a shared vision for Career Education in Nebraska using the Nebraska Career Education model as a framework.  The Career Education Leadership Academy is a practical, hands-on experience that will inspire, engage, and strengthen Career Educators’ leadership knowledge and skills.        
The Career Education Leadership Academy utilizes The Leadership Challenge model which is built around Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership.  The five practices include (1) Model the Way, (2) Inspire a Shared Vision, (3) Challenge the Process, (4) Enable Others to Act, and (5) Encourage the Heart.  The outcomes for the Leadership Academy include:

  • Create a shared vision for Nebraska Career Education
  • Identify the leadership strengths of Nebraska Career Educators
  • Communicate the fundamental values and beliefs of Nebraska Career Educators
  • Clarify and articulate the values that will guide a leader’s decisions and actions
  • Describe examples of how to align values with behavior
  • Explain how to lead a team to a consensus on shared values
  • Demonstrate how long-term interests can be realized by enlisting in a common vision
  • In the context of shared vision and values, look for new ideas outside the boundaries of the organization
  • Take incremental steps in applying new and innovative solutions
  • Identify approaches to create a climate in which people are willing to take risks and learn from mistakes
  • Identify the actions leaders take that make people feel powerful and those that make them feel powerless
  • Describe actions a leader can take to strengthen others
  • Describe actions that hinder and actions that facilitate building trust and
  • Give examples of meaningful recognitions
  • Identify short-term and long-term actions for improving in The Practices of Exemplary Leadership
  • Build collaboration, teamwork, and trust among Nebraska Career Educators
  • Provide a forum for secondary and postsecondary stakeholders to identify additional opportunities for collaboration
  • Develop an individual plan-of-action for the 2013-2014 school year which identifies a plan for applying The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership to a current challenge facing the participant’s Career Education program, school and/or community

Frequently Asked Questions

What CTE data needs to be reported each year?

There are two primary aspects for reporting postsecondary data that relate to CTE:

  1. The Postsecondary Perkins Students Template: This file collects sets of students that are enrolled in an institution during a certain academic year, and that are relevant to Perkins reporting (including all CTE Participants and Concentrators as defined here). A Postsecondary Enrollment record must be submitted for each student appearing in the Perkins Students template.

  2. The Postsecondary Perkins Courses Template: This file collects the entire course history, though the end of the reporting academic year, for each of the students listed in the Perkins Students file. At a minimum, all courses with an REU Course Weight of 1.5 of 2.0 should be reported. A Perkins Students record must first be submitted for each student appearing in the Perkins Courses file.

*Keep in mind the Postsecondary Enrollment Template as well as the Postsecondary Academic Awards Template must also be submitted by all Postsecondary institutions to avoid a data loading process rejection.

Note:

  • Data submission includes all students who earn credit in at least one Career and Technical Education course.

  • All courses related to occupational training should be weighted at least at a 1.5, per the Nebraska Community College State Aid Enrollment FTE/REU Guidelines document.

Where can I find the file specification templates?

Postsecondary file specifications can be found here

When and where do I submit these data?

The data collection timeline can be found here: Data Collection Timeline.

Data should be submitted via the Postsecondary Data Manager, located within the NDE Portal. A User’s Guide can be found here: Postsecondary Data Manager User Guide.

Additional information can be found on the Nebraska P-20 Technical Group’s website.

If you need help obtaining activation codes or navigating the site, the NDE Helpdesk can be reached at 888-285-0556 or nde.helpdesk@nebraska.gov.

Who can I talk to if I still have CTE data questions?

Katie Graham is the NCE Data, Research, and Evaluation Specialist. She can be reached at 402-471-3104 or katie.graham@nebraska.gov.
