Career & Technical Education (CTE)
All Medina Valley ISD students have the opportunity to enroll in Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses along with their traditional core academic courses. CTE courses provide an authentic learning experience through academically rigorous and technology-rich curriculum and skill application in real-world opportunities. The goal is for students to create a balanced four-year plan that includes the best of both academic and CTE courses.
Students enrolled in CTE courses have the opportunity to participate in a Career and Technical Student Organization (CTSO) appropriate to the course in which they are enrolled. CTSOs promote leadership development, job skill training, and can provide scholarship opportunities. Students who complete 3 courses for 4 or more credits within a program of study meet the requirements for endorsement.
The purpose of the Career and Technical Education Department is to recognize the needs of a diverse student population and to assist students in gaining skills to become competitive, independent, productive citizens in a global economy. Students will be given opportunities to maximize their fullest potential through quality instruction linked to business and industry, career guidance, and active student leadership organizations.
