Career and Technical Education


Career and Technical Education (CTE) develops and supports career-themed curriculum, work-based learning, and community partnerships to prepare students for college and careers.

CTE is

  • career pathways leading to further education or training in high-wage, high-demand, or high-skill careers;
  • introductory to advanced courses using project-based, problem-solving teaching;
  • work-based learning connected to classroom instruction (internships and youth apprenticeships);
  • industry-recognized credentials to show student skill attainment;
  • career and technical student organizations to enhance student leadership and technical skills;
  • dual enrollment for students to earn high school and college credit simultaneously;
  • modern technology in classrooms;
  • workforce, community, and postsecondary collaborations;
  • professional development for teacher effectiveness and content expertise.
