Preparing students for careers

We offer Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses at Kamiakin, Kennewick and Southridge high schools, as well as a limited number of offerings in the middle schools.

CTE is a planned program of courses and learning experiences that begins with exploration of career options, supports basic academic and life skills, and enables achievement of high academic standards, leadership, preparation for industry-defined work and advanced and continuing education.

Students in CTE courses have an opportunity to explore courses within their educational pathway and to prepare for their future careers. CTE courses and programs provide secondary students with the motivation to achieve high academic and industry standards as well as the skills and knowledge necessary to successfully transition to life beyond high school.

CTE Courses Offered:
*Courses vary by school. Please contact your school for a course schedule.
