CTAE Handbook Gives Overview of Possible Career Paths for Students

CCSD’s Career, Technical and Agricultural Education (CTAE) handbook, “Focus on the Future,” will be going home with 8th graders this month as they prepare to register for their high school classes.  The handbook highlights the 45 Career Pathways (an increase from 41) offered at CCSD schools, with information on the classes required and possible career options in various fields, along with Dual Enrollment and Work-Based Learning.  New pathways include Sports Marketing, Web Development, Game Design, Graphic Communications and Agricultural Leadership.  

Career Pathways are an option for all CCSD students, whether they plan to attend college or start a career immediately after high school. The handbook is posted on our website here.  Parents are encouraged to look through the handbook with their student and talk about possible areas of interest.  Additional information can be found on the CCSD CTAE webpage.
