Students and faculty in La Porte ISD join others across the nation during the month of February to celebrate national Career and Technical Education (CTE) MonthTM. This year's theme is CTE: Careers Through Education.
CTE MonthTM provides CTE programs across the country an opportunity to demonstrate how CTE educates students to be college- and career- ready and prepares them for high-wage, high-demand career fields.
Among the special activities held in La Porte ISD were a presentation on CTE programs at the Feb. 14 Board of Trustees meeting, a Feb. 7 farewell dinner for students visiting from China that was catered by LPHS culinary arts students,and a Feb. 8 La Porte High School maritime dinner sponsored by the Port of Houston Authority.
Throughout the month, guest speakers addressed students in CTE classrooms, and parent presentations on programs of study/career pathways were offered at both LPISD junior high campuses.
"The activities planned over the next month will illustrate the rigor and relevance CTE courses offer our students," said Debbie Seibert, career and technical education facilitator at La Porte High School. "By partnering with the business community, CTE programs are investing in students' lives with the latest technology and skills that will prepare them to become successful employees as well as future leaders."
