ISD 709 Career and Technical Education: We GET to Work! 
    ISD 709’s Career & Technical Education (CTE) program is designed to help focus students into career/post-secondary pathways that fit their personality and academic interests. 
  • Today's CTE is for all students, integrated with academics in a rigorous and relevant curriculum.
  • CTE courses are taught by some of the most highly qualified professionals in the region - over 80% come from industry first and then education. They bring real-world knowledge and connections to help students explore and succeed in the competitive job market.
  • Students work hands-on with the material and learn life skills.  Our mission is to prepare students for the workforce of tomorrow by providing them with work skills beyond individual content specialties. 
  • High school students can earn college credit in their area of interest, a great head start.
  • Courses may help students qualify for and earn accreditation/certification in their area of interest.
  • Career Clubs provide experiences beyond the classroom and help students connect to their schools.  
  • The goal is to help students GET to work - that means high-paying careers, both regionally and globally.  Learn more about classes that lead to the career you want:
