WHAT IS CTE?
Spokane Valley CTE exists to support students in discovering their passion and pursuing their future. We do this by advising, assisting, supporting and advocating for career and technical education.
Spokane Valley CTE is based on a consortium of four school districts – CVSD, EVSD, Freeman, and WVSD – who bring together business and education to advise and approve Career and Technical Education programs.
The Spokane Valley CTE General Advisory Council (GAC) is a group of volunteers who bring together business and education to advise and approve Career and Technical Education programs.
Today’s rigorous and relevant career and technical education (CTE) is an integral part of high school education options, preparing youth for postsecondary education and training and a wide range of high-wage, high-skill, high-demand careers.
Career & Technical Education exists to provide students with exploration and preparation for post-secondary education, training, or career.
Here is some more information on Spokane County’s Labor Market and the need for CTE in middle and high school.
Career Technical Education (CTE) is positively impacting students across the nation as they progress towards college and career.
