February is CTE Month in Lamar CISD

Feb 01, 2021 | Community Relations

At its January meeting, the Lamar CISD Board of Trustees passed a resolution proclaiming February as Career and Technical Education Month in Lamar CISD.

As Texas’ population grows, the state becomes less rural, more global and more diverse.

Students need to be aware of, and prepared for, all opportunities in the work place.

Specialized training is imperative. The knowledge necessary for a skilled labor force in Texas starts with Career and Technical Education (CTE) at the secondary level.

Proclaiming February as “Career and Technical Education Month” provides the community with a clear statement that CTE is valued in Lamar CISD.

Today’s CTE provides students with:

  •  Academic subject matter taught with a relevance to the real world;
  •  Employability skills, from job-related abilities to workplace ethics;
  • Career pathways that link secondary and post-secondary education; and
  • Education for training related to workplace training, skill upgrades and career advancement.
