Career and Technical Education Month
February is Career and Technical Education (CTE) Month, a time dedicated to celebrating career and technical education across the state and nation. The idea behind CTE Month is to spend some time celebrating what career and technical education is, the benefits and opportunities it provides students, and the impact it has on the community.
