“Student" means any pupil under the age of twenty-one as of September first of the academic period being reported, who does not have a high school diploma and who is enrolled in a school of the city school district of the city of New York, not including a pre-kindergarten student or a preschool child as preschool child is defined in section 4410 of the education law.

b. Not later than April 30, 2017, and annually thereafter on or before April 30, the department shall submit to the council and post conspicuously on the department’s website, a report for the preceding academic year which shall include, but not be limited to the following:

1. The total number of high school-level CTE programs in schools of the city school district of the city of New York, including for each (i) the name of the program; (ii) the field or discipline for which  the program prepares students; (iii) the number of industry partners associated with the program; (iv) the high school at which the program is located; (v) whether the high school is a CTE-designated high school; (vi) whether the CTE program has received approval through the New York state department of education’s CTE approval process; (vii) the grade levels served by such program; and (viii) the number of students enrolled in such program;
