Career and Technical Education

​​​

We believe our approach to Career and Technical Education encourages students to learn how things work, to experiment, invent and redesign things through multiple iterations and understand the processes of engineering, design, and entrepreneurship.

CTE faculty outreach efforts assist in the development of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, & Mathematics) projects across content areas and schools. CTE spaces are accessible to students throughout the days to be utilized for projects in other courses or to pursue personal interests.

The redesign of the middle school CTE curriculum continues to be a driver of positive change. General enrollment continues to grow in CTE courses, high school credit-bearing course are being added, and teachers are connecting with elementary schools to develop increased capacity for project-based learning, STEAM opportunities, and advanced manufacturing technologies in the lower grades.

The interest in mechatronics , engineering design, and entrepreneurship is especially high across the Division. Plans are underway to redesign the high school CTE curriculum for vertical alignment and to include pathways for meaningful credentialing. ​​​​
