Item-Writing Calendar

Every year, CETE along with ODE, creates an item-writing calendar for the career field in which we are writing. This is to help us plan and schedule these workshops in a way that works for you, our SME. We plan around various things such as holidays, spring and winter break, and special events such as Career Tech Student Organizations (CTSO) activities.

Calendar dates may be revised during the year. The most up-to-date versions are located in the table below.

We will be item-writing for Agriculture & Environmental Systems in the 2023-2024 school year. If you are interested in participating, please complete our sign-up form.

*Calendar is subject to change; please check back periodically for updates.
