Middle School courses ( foods, industrial arts, etc.) can be assigned a State Course Code (CBEDS) that is referenced as a Career Technical Education (CTE) State Course Code (codes 7000 - 8999).   If the Aeries course number is part of a Career Pathway, the course type will be reported as Career Technical Education and the course documented accordingly for the pathway.  

Middle school courses should use a separate Aeries course number, that is not reported within a Career Pathway, but uses the same Career Technical Education (CTE) State Course Code (CBEDS) . The section will still require CTE Provider reporting information (typically - District).  

Instead of using a CTE State Course Code (coded 7000 - 8999), another possible option for middle schools is to create a course and use the State Course Code (CBEDS) for an Exploratory/Wheel/Enrichment/Activity (code 6024) course.
