Students and faculty at Medina Valley ISD will join others across the nation during the month of February to celebrate national Career and Technical Education (CTE) MonthTM. This year’s theme is Opportunities for Career Success! CTE Month provides CTE programs across the country an opportunity to demonstrate how CTE makes students college- and career- ready and prepares them for high-wage, high-demand career fields. Among
the special activities scheduled will be our CTE Showcase at the High School for incoming freshmen. During the instructional day on February 1, 2016 they will be visiting various career clusters throughout the high school campus. During this time they will not only be able to see first-hand what CTE is all about but they will also be able to start to make plans for their course selections which will be done by the end of this week. To our beloved parents, upper classmen in HS, current 5th graders, and community, you will have an opportunity to see how CTE programs work and how our students are being prepared for college and/or career readiness. Our doors to the public will open at 6:00 p.m. and close at 7:00 p.m. This show case will be in six various locations through the high school campus.
CTE encompasses 94 percent of high school students and 13 million postsecondary students in the United States and includes high schools, career centers, community and technical colleges, four-year universities and more. CTE is a major part of the solution to myriad national economic and workforce problems, such as high school dropout rates, a weakened economy, global competitiveness and massive layoffs. At a time when opportunity for employment is so critical, CTE programs in every community are ensuring students are equipped with the skills to successfully enter the workforce.
For more information about our CTE Programs you may call 830-931-2243.
Our vision is to have a rigorous Career and Technical Education program that prepares and equips students with industry certifications based upon community needs and provides students with skills to either begin high-skilled, high-wage earning careers or continue their post-secondary education.
