The Maryland State Department of Education’s Divisions of Career and College Readiness and Library Development and Services along with Caroline County Public Schools and Caroline County Public Library today unveiled a new public awareness campaign focusing on Career and Technology Education (CTE).
The campaign kicked-off at the Central Branch of the Caroline County Public Library in Denton, Maryland and will be followed by a series of three presentations which will highlight the CTE programs offered in Caroline County Public Schools. The presentations will take place from December 2013 to February 2014 at the various Caroline County Public Library branches.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with the Caroline County Public Library to highlight the importance of Career and Technology Education and to share with the community the wonderful opportunities these programs offer students,” said Khalid Mumin, Caroline County Public Schools Superintendent.
Caroline County Public Schools offers more than 20 career and technology education programs of study at its three high schools – Colonel Richardson, North Caroline and the Career and Technology Center. Programs are offered in the following career areas: Business, Management and Finance; Construction and Development; Consumer Services, Hospitality, and Tourism; Environmental, Agriculture and Natural Resources; Health and Biosciences; Human Resource Services; Manufacturing, Engineering, and Technology; and Transportation Technologies.
Across the State, CTE programs provide opportunities for students to actively learn about careers and prepare for successful futures. In FY 2012, over half (55 percent) of all secondary CTE graduates met the requirements for entry into both college and careers.
