CTE Skill Programs
CTE Skill Programs follow the same curriculum as their respective counterparts, except at a moderate pace and in a smaller setting. Students will receive preparation for entry-level employment and/or post-secondary education and are expected to function autonomously. Evaluative tests will be based upon students’ academic knowledge and practical experience. Employability Profiles will be utilized to evaluate students’ universal soft skills and work-based technical skills. Transfer into more advanced programs (CTE Programs) is contingent upon a student’s progress.
Exploratory Programs offer those students requiring a more individualized curriculum and structured setting the opportunity to familiarize themselves with workplace skills. As in all of our programs, students will be provided with instruction and have opportunities to practice workplace skills on a regular basis. Ongoing evaluations will be utilized to assess a student’s progress. Transfer into more advanced programs (CTE Skill Programs) is contingent upon the student’s progress. This program will be ungraded unless requested otherwise by the district..
