Career and Technical Education
The Career and Technical Education Department provides supporting resources to enable public schools to initiate and maintain quality CTE programs in accordance with the Arkansas Department of Career Education's Strategic Plan, Goals, and Objectives.
The CTE Coordinator has the responsibility of developing and coordinating 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 and to encourage the development, implementation, and improvement of Career and Technical programs.
