As you have seen in previous posts, high school students across the country are operating the same equipment on their own turf as what you see at professional venues. Of course, they aren’t always as large as the Falcons new halo!
In honor of these students, Daktronics recognizes Career and Technical Education month as we celebrate you, the school administrators who implement these unparalleled classroom experiences at the high school level.
What is CTE?
Career and technical education, or CTE, is education that directly prepares students for high-wage, high-demand careers. CTE covers many different fields, including health care, information technology, advanced manufacturing, hospitality and management. CTE encompasses many different types of education, from classroom learning to certification programs to work-based learning opportunities outside the classroom.
What can you do during CTE Month?
Host a school visit and invite members of your local community to learn about your school’s strong CTE programs firsthand.
Communicate with policymakers from mayors to Congress to inform them of the importance of CTE.
Work with business and industry leaders to ensure they understand the role CTE plays in readying their future workforce.
