With the understanding that four years or more of college may not be the right choice for every student, ChelanHigh School offers a program that helps students be career ready as they are handed their high school diploma. It’s called the CTE Program.
Chelan Career & Technical Education students created videos highlighting the impact the program has had on them and shared them with the School Board and invited guests from the community at a Career and Technology Education Showcase Event held earlier this month.
Students shared their stories and experiences in the program, which allows students to study core academics as well as technical skills that focus on a specific career, preparing students for postsecondary education and careers.
Chelan Superintendent, Rob Manahan, tells KOZI News that the program offers students the opportunity to focus on a variety of different skills.
In a recent national study, students who are part of the Career and Technology Education Program are more likely to graduate, less likely to get suspended, have higher attendance rates and score better on academic achievement."CLICK HERE" for Audio
