Skill Certifications

Competency-based testing has grown to become an integral part of Career and Technical Education (CTE) curriculum, program improvement and accountability strategies.  CTE courses are based on objectives and standards created by the State Office of Education in conjunction with business and industry partners.  Students may earn a certificate verifying skill attainment in CTE courses.  These certificates list the specific skills the student has learned and can be used when applying for employment or compiling a portfolio.

The primary purpose of the assessment system is to improve CTE program curriculum and instruction.  A core set of skills were identified for each of the assessments in the Skills Certificate program by the state CTE program specialists, classroom teachers, and the business community.  In addition, students who pass the performance assessment and correctly answer eighty percent of the questions on the multiple-choice assessment receive a certificate that lists the standards measured by the test.

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added:  “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
