Career Technical Education
Career Technical Education is rigorous, cutting edge and relevant courses preparing youth for a variety of high-wage, high-skill and high-demand careers. Students enrolling in CTE courses can choose from a variety of pathway options at each comprehensive high school or the King Career Center.
CTE strives to continuously improve and grow programs to meet the changing needs of our community, our state and our nation. Increasing reliance on technology, personally and professionally, requires continuous adaptation in our courses and programs.
Pathways and Courses
Career Pathways are a structure for organizing and delivering quality CTE programs.
Maintaining a rigorous and relevant CTE program requires a continuous model of improvement. CTE has embarked on a 5 year pathway development plan to review and align career pathways.
National Career Cluster
Development of Career Technical Education pathways is done in alignment with the National Career Cluster Framework.
