Career & Technical Education (CTE)

February is Career and Technical Education (CTE) Month. We'll be joining education and employer partners to highlight its value to students, employers and communities.

Career & Technical Education allows students to practice what they learn and understand how theory relates to practice. It also promotes timely and valuable career awareness and exploration.

In 2016-17, more than 36,600 students took Dual-Enrollment1 courses at high schools across the state, earning nearly 147,400 technical college credits. That's an estimated value of at least $19.2 million.
