Our goal with Career Technical Education (CTE) is to deliver an enriched educational experience that promotes student interest and academic success, while also developing technical and soft skills training necessary to prepare our students for college and career. In addition to academic learning, students benefit from the practical, hands-on learning experiences they gain from their work based learning opportunities. These experiences range from internships, job shadowing, on-the-job training, and industry-certification opportunities.
For the 2020-21 school year, we are committed to students continuing to gain these experiences but understand things may look different from our industry partners providing virtual work experiences, students participating in web conferences to learn about career opportunities or taking online courses to receive industry certification. Many of our programs have returned smaller groups of students to participate in work setting on campus to utilize industry equipment our schools have purchased or participate in work settings in smaller numbers. Our goal is to have small groups of students in-person for every program as soon as possible.
