TECHNICAL EDUCATION (CTE)
Connecting Learning to Earning
Career & Technical Education (CTE) courses are offered in grades 7-12 and focus on preparing students with professional training in a variety of career fields. Students develop an understanding of the importance of work and how performance, efforts, and decision making directly affect future educational and career opportunities. Students are trained in basic workplace skills as well as specific technical proficiencies in wide variety of career pathways.
Career & Technical Education courses provide innovative educational opportunities within the Marysville School District. Students are engaged in learning and excited about the opportunity to experience focused course work that allows them to excel in an area of interest. Students who participate in CTE courses are being prepared to enter a highly competitive workforce based on a global knowledge and information economy.
Students who are career and college ready need to be able to compete in this every changing workforce and have marketable skills that put them ahead of others. CTE offers these skills in a rigorous, hands-on, project based learning environment. CTE courses also offer embedded core academics, which allow students to complete their high school graduation requirements more efficiently. CTE courses are aligned to Washington State teaching standards and offer high school as well as college credit in many areas. Instruction is provided by highly trained educators who are experts in their field of study.
