February is CTE Month

February is CTE Month
Posted on 02/06/2018
CTE MonthBoerne ISD has devoted much time and effort to have excellent Career and Technical Education ProgrammingFebruary is CTE Month nationwide and we invite you to celebrate our students and their achievements along with the Instructors that guide them.

Our 40 Instructors are diligent to stay current in their fields and many bring extended experience in the workplace to their classrooms. Collaboration with colleagues along with an engaging and exciting learning environment has been a standard in the CTE classrooms of Boerne ISD.

In the past 6 years we have grown from 1 High School campus to 2 and increased our CTE Faculty from 28 CTE Educators to 40, due in part to our enrollment growth as well as the diverse offerings we are able to provide our students. Taking the “deep dive” with a coherent sequence of courses is of great benefit to all students as they experience Dual Credit and Articulated courses, Internships and the opportunity to obtain Industry Standard Certifications.

Please take a moment to thank a
CTE Instructor for their “real world”, hands on classrooms where students can explore
possibilities for their futures as they prepare for
College and Career Readiness in the 21st Century Workplace.

A few notable statistics to share…….

- The average high school graduation rate in 2015 for CTE concentrators was 93%, compared to the national cohort rate
of 80% (US DOE)

- More than 75% of secondary CTE students pursued post secondary education shortly after high school (National Center of Ed Statistics)

- 4 out of 5 CTE graduates are still enrolled in post secondary education 2 years later
