What is Career Technical Education (CTE)?
Career Technical Education provides ALL students opportunities to complete a sequence of academically rigorous and technically challenging courses within a focused multi-course career pathway, preparing them for success after high school. Upon completion of the pathway, students are equipped with a distinct competitive advantage, which paves the way for college, professional training, licensure, and even immediate employment.
In RUSD, students begin exploring careers as early as kindergarten. As they transition from elementary to middle school, we provide opportunities for them to engage with those careers virtually and in-person. By their junior year of high school, our CTE students experience real-world, work-based learning alongside industry professionals.
