Career & Technical Education

As of 2015, students in approved programs have had the opportunity to make use of a CTE graduation pathway. To use the CTE 4 + 1 graduation pathway option, students must successfully complete an approved program (including a 3-part technical skills assessment).

Approved programs lead to an industry-recognized credential or certificate at the postsecondary level, or an associate or baccalaureate degree and offer:

  • an opportunity to apply academic concepts to real-world situations;
  • preparation for industry-based assessments or certifications; and the opportunity to earn college credit or advanced standing while still in high school; and
  • work-based learning opportunities where students demonstrate mastery of skills essential in the workplace.
