Career Technical Education

Student-Centered, Inclusive Access To Successful Careers

Our district offers courses in state-approved Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs. All programs include a coherent sequence of courses leading to student attainment of the state standards in the program. At this time CTE offers 2 amazing courses with industry-current curricula and state-of-the-art equipment. Upon graduation, students are prepared to transition successfully to postsecondary education and are equipped with the necessary skills to begin working in a specific career.

CTE students have opportunities to participate in the Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSO) that are directly related to their program. FCCLA, Educators Rising, and SkillsUSA are recognized as integral parts of the CTE programs and provide career and leadership development, motivation, and recognition. We are working on integrating those pieces into the program.

How Does CTE Benefit My Student?

Throughout the United States, the CTE education model is found in many schools. ** model focuses on providing students with skills, knowledge, and other training to prepare them for a career in the next evolution of vocational education. **As a valuable part of any school, the program offers a number of tangible advantages to students, HPA, and society as a whole.

**CTE is built around the idea of giving students hands-on opportunities with the end goal of getting a job following graduation. The industry associated with the course they enroll in is introduced exposing them to basic skills relating to that industry. ** CTE focuses on true skills training. Students learn about things and how to do them as well. In addition, students enrolled in a CTE course are often able to earn industry-recognized credentials and certifications.
** Much like a diploma, credentials, and certifications show verification of skills training for future employers to review these achievements and get a clearer picture of the talent and experience someone has. ** CTE certification provides a “leg up” on the competition when applying for employment. CTE also acts as a stepping stone to the next stage in a student’s path to higher education. More doors and opportunities open down the line and for society as a whole, it means a more skilled and experienced workforce.
