Save the Date: February is CTE Month
During the month of February, students, educators, and administrators across the state will join secondary and postsecondary students nationwide in celebrating Career and Technical Education (CTE). Schools can pick a day, a week, or the entire month to spotlight CTE programs.
The 2014 CTE Month theme is:
Career and Technical Education:
Pathways to Lifelong Career Success
Career and Technical Education prepares both youth and adults for a wide range of careers and further educational opportunities. These careers may require varying levels of education—including industry-recognized credentials, postsecondary certificates, and two- and four-year degrees. Career and Technical Education is crucial to providing the strong workforce training needed to fill the good-paying jobs.
CTE Month is a great opportunity to promote your programs and advocate for Career and Technical Education.

In high school I started taking a variety of CTE courses. Each one
of these courses has taught me so much and has prepared me
for the courses I will be taking in college.
