FEBRUARY WAS CTE MONTH!
February provided opportunities to celebrate and promote Career and Technology Education (CTE) in Maryland. CTE prepares students to become career and college ready and to obtain high-wage jobs in high-demand occupations.
The Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) embraced CTE Month and developed and coordinated a variety of activites that educated Marylanders about the lifelong impact that CTE has on Maryland high school students.
