CTE Covid 19 Virtual Instruction Resources
The Michigan Department of Education is providing guidance on the virtual delivery of Career and Technical Education (CTE) State Approved Programs.
Goodbye MCCTE Navigator, Hello GEMS!
Michigan Department of Education (MDE) is retiring Michigan Center for Career and Technical Education (MCCTE) Navigator and transitioning the CIP Self-Review to the MDE Grants Electronic Monitoring System (GEMS). Access to MCCTE Navigator will remain until September 30, 2020. It is the responsibility of each Career and Technical Education (CTE) program to extract and archive any files they wish to retain from their MCCTE Navigator CIP Self-Review for historical purposes and for uploading into the new CIP Self-Review in GEMS.
Using the CIP Self-Review Form as reference, teachers can now begin organizing and preparing files they will eventually upload into the GEMS CIP Self-Review. If you have any questions, contact Tom Knight, education consultant, Office of Career and Technical Education at email@example.com.
- When login information is available, I will enter your email address into GEMS and it will send you a request to login.
- You will need your MEIS login information to login.
- GEMS training will be available soon! As soon as OCTE posts the webinars, I will share.
