Career Technical Education

February is CTE Month

February officially marks Career Technical Education (CTE) Month. Each February, we celebrate the value of CTE and the achievements and accomplishments of CTE programs across the country. At SVUSD, our CTE programs directly prepare students for high-wage, high-demand careers. Our career pathways cover many different fields, including arts, media and entertainment, business and finance, education, engineering and architecture, health science, hospitality, information technology, transportation, and many more. CTE includes hands-on classroom learning, industry certifications, and work-based learning opportunities outside the classroom. Today, we have over 4,500 students enrolled in our CTE classes from 7th-12th grade. That is something to celebrate!
