Turn Your Dream Into a Career
The mission of Career and Technical Education is to provide all students a seamless education system through competency-based instruction. The structured training each student receives gives him or her the tools needed to be successful in post high school employment and post secondary education including technical school and two and four year college.
CTE prepares students for the future by developing academic and technical skills in high demand, providing career exploration and work-based learning opportunities, and creating pathways leading to future education training or employment.
State funding for Career and Technical Education (CTE) is based on the regular Weighted Pupil Unit (WPU), including incentives to provide CTE in all forty districts. Funding is used to pay for the added costs of instruction for CTE programs. This legislative funding is often referred to as “CTE Add-on.” In addition, local funding in the school districts is also used to support CTE programs.
CTE funding is also supplemented with Carl D. Perkins funding, a federal appropriation. The federal government is highly interested in CTE to prepare the workforce with the academic and technical skills to succeed in a global economy. The additional funding is used to develop new CTE programs and update existing programs for in-demand and emerging careers.
