CTE courses are reevaluated periodically using Census Bureau employment data to decide whether they should still be considered nontraditional. The graphs below illustrate employment by gender in a selection of occupations in each career cluster based on data from the Census Bureau's most recent Equal Employment Opportunity tables. They should help us to see how CTE courses might be redesignated next time.

|Police and Firefighters are predominantly male, so CTE's Criminal Justice, Public Safety, and Firefighting courses can appropriately remain Nontraditional for Females.|
|Technically-oriented Transportation occupations are male-dominated, so it is appropriate for CTE courses in these fields to remain Nontraditional for Females.|
