On this day, February 23, 1917, the Smith-Hughes National Vocational Education Act was signed into law, launching the federal investment in career and technical education (CTE). Since then, federal CTE policy has evolved in response to changing U.S. economic and social conditions. Follow along as we highlight major legislation and other activities throughout more than 100 years.
What is CTE? CTE prepares the workforce across a wide range of industries and occupations. CTE is good for students, good for businesses and good for communities. Check out this flyer that includes statistical data about CTE. Learn more about CTE at acteonline.org #CTEMonth
This week is National School Counseling Week 2023. We would like to take this opportunity to highlight our school counselor Mrs. Chanta Smothers. She has a tremendous impact on helping our students achieve school success and plan for a career. Every student deserves a school counselor and we are so thankful, this week and every week, for our very own Chanta Smothers. #NSCW23
