The Board of Education desires to have a dedicated Career Technical Education (CTE) Center that will allow USD 232 to better serve the needs of students and the community. Our students need the opportunity to prepare for their future with the academic and technical skills, knowledge and training necessary to succeed in career pathways. The new center will also assist with future growth by adding to the overall high school capacity.
The CTE Center, although a separate space, will be connected to the new Early Childhood Center as one overall facility.
CTE programming will help students connect what they are learning to the real world through a hands-on context. It will help them gain key skills to assist them in beginning a career after graduation. It is also a great way to explore career options and meet the people who work in them.
The CTE center will be located on property already owned by the school district, on the northeast corner of 83rd Street and Mize Boulevard (next to Mill Creek Middle School). The district is in the process of identifying and planning specific CTE programs, with input from the business community, students and parents. Anticipated completion is August 2021.
What programs will be offered at the Career & Technical Education Center? The school district has not yet determined the exact programs that will be offered to high school students. It is undertaking a process that is collecting input from stakeholders, such as students and the business community. Once programs are identified over the coming months, a proposal will be submitted to the Board of Education. The physical space for the CTE Center will be flexible so that programming can change over time to best support the interests and needs of students. > Learn more.
