District Learning Day - August 2, 2018
Schools that do NOT attend Cultural Competency training during the month of August are required to participate in the DLD activities planned for August 2. Please find a copy of the CTE Program of Study for that day here.
IF your school does participate in Cultural Competency training in August but not on August 2 specifically AND you do not have other mandatory meetings to attend at the school level, you are welcome to partake in the DLD activities planned by the CTE department. In this case, please contact Ulla Carr (firstname.lastname@example.org or 865-406-1298) to let us know, since we have industry tours planned that have limited capacity.
Career Technical Education (CTE)
Career Technical Education (CTE) provides students of all ages with the academic and technical skills, knowledge and training necessary to succeed in future careers and to become lifelong learners. In total, about 12.5 million high school and college students are enrolled in CTE across the nation. CTE prepares these learners for the world of work by introducing them to workplace competencies, and makes academic content accessible to students by providing it in a hands-on context. In fact, the high school graduation rate for CTE concentrators is about 90% – 15 percentage points higher than the national average.Foundational to CTE are rigorous program standards. This section will help define what high-quality CTE looks like in the 21st century, with extended resources on the Common Career Technical Core and program of study standards, built on the National Career Clusters Framework®.
