Career Technical Education (CTE): CTE is offered by the District as career and workforce preparation for high school students, preparation for advanced training, and the upgrading of existing skills. CTE provides high school students 16 years of age and older with valuable career and technical education so students can (1) enter the workforce with skills and competencies to be successful; (2) pursue advanced training in postsecondary educational institutions; or (3) upgrade existing skills and knowledge.
