CTE Mission

  • 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. 

CTE Priorities

    1. To provide each eighth grade students the opportunity to identify career interests that are related to a career cluster, to develop an educational plan, and to select a logical sequence of courses. 
    2. To offer each student career learning experiences prior to graduation from high school. 
    3. To provide each student upon graduation with academic and technical skills needed to pursue additional education (technical school, community college, college or university) related to a career interest identified in high school. 
    4. To provide each student with understanding and knowledge that ethical behavior and work place skills are integral to successful employment. 
    5. To incorporate new and emerging foundation skills needed to perform tasks proficiently which are aligned with current business and industry standards. 
    6. Provide professional development programs to teachers, faculty, administrators, and academic counselors who are involved in integrating CTE programs. 
    7. Develop and implement evaluations of the CTE programs carried out with funds, including an assessment of how the needs of special populations are being met. 
    8. Initiate, improve, expand, and modernize quality CTE programs, including relevant technology. 
    9. Provide services and activities that are of sufficient size, scope, and quality to be effective. 
    10. Provide activities to prepare special populations for high-skill, high-wage, or high-demand occupations that will lead to self-sufficiency.
