Articulation Agreement Renewals

Throughout the next few weeks, Superintendents will begin receiving DocuSign requests to renew Bristol's CVTE Articulations for your school.

There have been a few significant changes to the CVTE Articulation process, and I've highlighted the most important of those changes below.

  • The format of the Articulation has been streamlined to clarify the terms of the agreement between the two institutions to include a Purpose, Guiding Principles, General Requirements and Ongoing Collaboration.
  • The timeframe for the renewal has been removed with the caveat that a new agreement would be required in the event there is a significant curriculum change in either the secondary partner's Chapter 74 program or Bristol's program.

These changes are intended to streamline the articulation process as well as, improve transparency of information across both institutions. Thank you in advance for your help with the renewal of these Articulations. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to Nikita at
