Tech Master Waiver
The Public Education Forum Board agreed to a waiver on the following Tech Master Standard to recognize students with the Tech Master designation.
Students who completed a 2 year CTE program during the 2019-2020 school year as a sophomore or junior and who will be graduating either in 2021 or 2022 were unable to take their MS-CPAS state test/national certification assessment due to COVID-19 shutting schools down. This is a requirement for students to be selected as a MS Tech Master.
Also, we will use the waiver for any CTE completer who graduates in 2021 or 2022. This will take care of all of the students who were impacted by last year’s canceled CPAS testing.
