Career Technical Education Advisory Committee

Our goal at the CTHSS is to ensure that our students are properly equipped with the necessary skills needed to be successful in a 21st century economy. As a district, we are extremely proud of the many valuable partnerships that we share with local and national businesses, organizations, industry leaders and educational institutions that have been beneficial in providing our students with the best career technical education possible.

Each technical high school has long-standing partnerships through various Career Technical Education Advisory Committees (CTEAC). CTEAC is comprised of businesses, industry leaders, CTHSS Career Technical Education administrators and teachers. The goal of these committees is to ensure that in every capacity CTHSS is meeting and exceeding current industry standards in:

  • Program curricula;
  • Program facilities;
  • State-of-the-art technology; 
  • Occupational outlook;
  • Employability skills; and
  • Workplace credentials.
