The InterMountain CTE Consortium is a partnership between educators and stakeholders who support Oregon’s vision through a regional, collaborative approach to shared decision making and professional learning.  We are committed to helping districts provide opportunities for all eastern Oregonian students to build successful futures. 

Oregon will reimagine and transform learner experiences in order to enhance their future prospects, empower their communities, and ensure equity in an inclusive, sustainable, innovation-based economy.”


Consortium Gals

In the Fall of 2019, the InterMountain CTE Consortium and Regional Coordinator began a year-long comprehensive needs assessment process that included data analysis, surveys and listening sessions of educator, partner agency and community stakeholders.  The result of this process is the 2020-2024 Strategic Plan, which includes a focus on our High Five Industry Sector Needs and goals for strengthening our regional programs of study.

Consortium Members:

Consortiums provide an opportunity for: small school access to Perkins funds; stronger partnerships between secondary and postsecondary members; shared common work and professional learning for CTE educators; less risk for not meeting performance measurements; and efficiencies gained in the administrative work associated with CTE.  We are governed by an operational agreement and represented by CTE Directors from each member district who provide CTE leadership within their school, district and the region.  Member districts recommit annually to the Consortium and CTE Directors invite regional partners to participate in our collaborative work.

The InterMountain CTE Consortium supports high-quality programs of study and professional development by facilitating 9th-14th grade Pathway groups.

These groups are led by regional instructors to collaborate on program improvement and approval. These groups are as strong as the teachers who participate in the shared work and are an important source of support and accountability for the Regional Coordinator’s recommendation for state approval and the Steering Committee’s investment of funds.
