About the Department

Career and Technical Education (CTE) is a planned program of courses, activities, and learning experiences that connect school and work. CTE provides opportunities for all students to choose career-related coursework and workplace experiences that will advance them from school to post-secondary placement.

Students are more likely to succeed when they see a purpose to their studies. By linking academic lessons to real-world activities and situations, CTE helps to improve student motivation and academic performance, and prepares students to choose careers of interest.
