Students and faculty at La Porte High School join others across the country in celebrating February as national Career and Technical Education (CTE) MonthTM.
This year's theme is Career and Technical Education Works! CTE MonthTM provides CTE programs across the country an opportunity to demonstrate how they educate students to be college- and career-ready.
Among the special activities in which La Porte High School is involved during the month are the Career Exploration Expo on Feb. 7, SkillsUSA competitive events on Feb. 8 and 9, Distributive Education Clubs of America (DECA) state leadership events on Feb. 28, and student tours of CTE programs throughout the month prior to course registration.
The activities to be held during February illustrate the rigor and relevance CTE courses offer students. 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.
CTE encompasses 94 percent of high school students and 13 million post-secondary students in the United States and includes high schools, career centers, community and technical colleges, four-year universities and more.
