Career and Technical Education Department
The Career and Technical Education Department has the responsibility to develop and coordinate the Carl D. Perkins Federal Program. It is our goal to serve as a liaison between our member schools and the Career and Technical Education state staff and program managers.
We are here to assist new Career and Technical Instructors, to provide staff development, and to encourage the development, implementation, and improvement of Career and Technical programs.
Improvement of Career and Technical Education programs has three major components: (1) A change in the curriculum to add advanced technologies, (2) the purchase of the instructional equipment needed to teach the new technology, and (3) in-service training for the teacher, on both teaching the new curriculum and using the new equipment. These three components will be used as guidelines in making decisions for all staff development and equipment purchases within our department.
