Career and Technology Education
 
Introduction

Career and Technology Education(CTE) courses are designed to prepare students in the technical and professional skills necessary to succeed in today’s high-demand occupational environment. Students have the opportunity to utilize their academic skills in the following career fields: Agriculture, Business, Desktop Publishing, Journalism and Video Technologies and Web Design.  These programs provide a variety of elective courses from which students are allowed to select and are in addition to the academic courses required for graduation.   Career and Technology Education can help a student explore his/her potential and establish future career goals. Career education may assist students by providing them with a means for enhanced earning potential while attending post-secondary education/training.  Career education courses encourage students to develop a personal career plan and provide information for post-secondary education opportunities. Students may choose to take advantage of the TECH-PREP agreement in which students receive community college credit for technical courses completed in high school.
