Career-Technical Education » Home


The mission of Career and Technical Education is to empower all students to be successful citizens, workers and leaders in a global economy. 
When students participate in Career and Technical Education as an integral part of the total school experience, and
When parents recognize that Career and Technical Education impacts achievement of educational and career goals, and
