Career and Technical Education
The mission of the Clint Independent School District is to prepare all students to be successful citizens. The District will work in partnership with the community and the family to create opportunities for the student to maximize personal potential.
Together we Build Tomorrow and we can accomplish this by teaching today for the professions of tomorrow.
Clint ISD offers Career and Technical Education programs within the following 11 of the 14 career clusters as defined by the U.S. Department of Education: Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources, Architecture and Construction, Arts, Audio/Video Technology and Communications, Business Marketing and Finance, Health Science, Human Services, Hospitality and Tourism, Law and Public Service, Manufacturing, Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, Transportation, Distribution and Logistics.

The involvement of secondary partners, postsecondary partners and industry partners play a crucial role in the development and implementation of CTE programs of study. These partnerships provide our district's Local Advisory Committee recommendations on course offerings and curricula, in-demand career information, and examples of real-world situations. Presently, Clint High School is a designated P-TECH campus. Collaboration between Clint ISD, El Paso Community College, Educate Texas and Workforce Solutions Borderplex is key in the success of our CTE programs. We value the support and assistance our partners provide in mentorship and internship opportunities for all our CTE students.
