To develop a district-wide CTE program that is promoted by a coalition of parents, business and community partners to enhance career opportunities
for all students
CTE gives students a foundation for career success by integrating rigorous academic content with job-specific technical skills and hand-on learning.
CTE allows students to see the relevance of their academic preparation while participating in educational activities designed to prepare students to gain entry-level employment in high skill, high wage, and high demand occupations or continue their education in a chosen career field.
CTE is organized by a national framework of 16 Career Clusters. Each cluster presents a range of related career options to students, helps them discover their interests, and empowers them to choose the educational pathway that can lead to success in high school, college and their chosen career.
