Career & Technical Education (CTE)
Career & Technical Education (CTE) programs in Washington are aligned with rigorous industry and academic standards. Teachers participate in meaningful professional development on curricula and instruction, standards and assessment, and academic integration.
CTE is at the forefront of innovation in education in Washington. Program partnerships and advisories communicate this vision with business and industry partners.
Each year, thousands of CTE students graduate from high school with career goals, job skills and leadership skills knowing exactly where they will go next to further their academic and hands-on education and training.
