Career & Technical Education

Our Career and Technical Education team coordinates all CTE programs throughout the district for grades 6-12, including Southside and Eastside technical centers and Locust Trace Agriscience Center. We help schools provide students with the skills to move on to college or the workforce and a desire for life-long learning. We also serve as a connection between the schools and our business community, relate school courses to technical opportunities, and develop school/business partnerships and future job possibilities.
