CTSO Data Collection 

Beginning in the June cycle of the 2014-2015 school year, school districts will be required to provide student information regarding their participation in Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSOs). This data will be reported within the Career Technical Student Organization (CTSO) file. The purpose of this data collection is to provide the department with a more concise look at the level of student participation in CTSOs.
