    technical content at the secondary and postsecondary level that:
    *Incorporates challenging state academic standards
         *Addresses academic, technical, and employability skills
         *Aligns with the needs of industries in the state, regional, and/or local economy
         *Progresses in specificity, beginning with all aspects of industry and leading to more occupation
            specific instruction
         *Has multiple entry and exit points that incorporate credentialing
         *Culminates in the attainment of a recognized postsecondary credential
