Letter from the Administrator

Welcome to the Idaho Division of Career Technical Education (IDCTE)! 

Clay Long

IDCTE, in partnership with our stakeholders, provides leadership and coordination of programs in career technical education which prepare Idaho’s youth and adults for high-skill, in-demand careers.  

This is accomplished only through the collaboration and commitment of our local institutions, educators, and industry partners. As you learn more about how we support the front-line working to accomplish our mission, I encourage you to engage in our mission—whether encouraging our youth and adults to take part in career technical education programs available to middle school, high school, college, or adult students, or engaging as an industry partner with your local program.

Over the past 100 years, IDCTE has grown and evolved, last year serving over 100,000 individuals through our various services and programs. We are strategically positioned to connect industry and education to ensure the needs of industry are met with the training and programs offered. This Division accomplishes this through state and federal appropriations totaling over $80 million, 93% coming from Idaho’s general fund. To learn more about our work, review our 2022 Annual Report or the CTE Work Group Report.

We believe the added value provided through a student’s experiences within CTE positions them for increased success. Our staff is committed to providing the highest-level customer service to our stakeholders and ensuring Idaho’s youth and adults are prepared for the next leg of their journey. 

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me or any of our staff

Thanks for stopping by,

Clay Long, Ph.D.
State Administrator
