Now seen as an integral part of the
public education landscape, CTE

along with preparation for
these
including; building
& construction trades; agricultural
science & mechanics; hospitality,
tourism & recreation; culinary arts;

in their feeder junior high
schools. CTE programs and pathways
are increasing in high schools
throughout Santa Barbara County
and beyond. Close to 12,000 high
school students are enrolled in CTE
courses countywide, and about 12.5
million high school and college students
are enrolled in CTE nationwide.
Unlike the vocational education
programs of the past, CTE is not
about tracking students directly into
the workforce. The coursework is
packaged to allow students options
after graduation: enter the workforce
or head to a community college
or four-year university where
additional knowledge is acquired,
adding to the skills they've already
gained in their chosen CTE field.
" With economic forecasts guiding
the way, school and district leaders
across Santa Barbara County
work closely with the business community
to strategically build high
school CTE pathways that align
with local workforce needs, " said
Sarah Cameron, Director of Career
Technical Education for the Santa
Barbara County Education Office.
" The goal is to provide students with
rigorous, industry-aligned, academic
content and relevant, hands-on
training that sets them on a path to
high-wage, high-demand careers, "
