ACTC students in Mr. Jesse Potts' Industrial Maintenance class enjoyed learning about harness safety. For part of their performance test, students get to properly fit a safety harness, hardhat, and safety glasses and see what it feels like to hang while wearing the personal fall arrest system.

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.
