Welcome to Career and Technical Education
The Career and Technical Education Department provides students with training to acquire skills necessary for success in post-secondary training as well as the work-place. Articulation between the school system and post-secondary institutions also provides students with an opportunity to receive post-secondary credit as they complete their secondary course work. Industry-based certification is a driving force in all areas of the career and technical education curriculum. In many classes, students are able to earn industry-based certifications related to the course work in which they are enrolled. With internships and cooperative education options, students can also graduate with a "Career and Technical Education Endorsement" on their high school diploma.
