Career and Technical Education

Vision

To inspire, engage and prepare students in order to promote success in the constantly changing workforce

The Career and Technical Education (CTE) vision is defined by five guiding principles.1 Collectively, these principles serve as guideposts for CTE leaders and partners to set priorities and make decisions affecting CTE programs and policies and to chart a new course for CTE in the 21st Century.

Principle 1: CTE is critical to ensure local, regional, state, national and global competitiveness for TISD students

Principle 2: CTE actively partners with employers to design and provide high-quality, dynamic programs

Principle 3: CTE prepares students to succeed in post-secondary education and careers

Principle 4: CTE delivers comprehensive courses in incorporating academic rigor as well as technical and employability skills and aligns programs of study to The National Career Clusters Framework

Principle 5: CTE is a results-driven system that links to greater earnings, improved employability, and positive cost-benefit ratio
