Target #1: At least 90 percent of Alaska Vocational Technical Center long-term students complete their programs.
Analysis of results and challenges: The Council on Occupational Education (COE) has nationally accredited Alaska Vocational Technical Center (AVTEC) since 1997. The COE benchmark for measuring "students that complete long-term training programs" is established as the national average of more than 400 similar public post-secondary institutions. For each year from FY1999 to FY2019, AVTEC has consistently met or exceeded the COE benchmark.
AVTEC started FY2019 with 19 students from the previous year and enrolled 164 new students during the year. Of those 192 students, 3 exited early and 18 are still in training and will be considered in the FY2020 numbers. Of the 171 students eligible for graduation in FY2019, 148 graduated, yielding a graduation rate of 86 percent.
