CTE = successPreparing Today's Students for Tomorrow's Careers

Douglas County School District is committed to providing our students with authentic, project-based learning, allowing them to explore industries, gain real world knowledge and 21st Century Skills they’ll need to compete for the college or career of their choice.

Through Career and Technical Education programming, DCSD's vocational and career training program, we strive to give our students the experience they’ll need to be the best business and community leaders possible.

CTE is designed to help students choose a career path, pick the learning needed, build the right skills and knowledge and get into a great job in a field they will love.

Today’s generation of CTE programs are integrated with the academic courses needed to prepare students for college and career success. Programs allow students the opportunity to earn college credit while still in high school. All students gain the academic knowledge and technical skills required for careers with high demand, along with the skills like problem solving, being a team player, and being organized. CTE students get a head start in higher education and the job market and an opportunity to earn more, sooner.

Our vision is to become a premier leader in Career & Technical Education that inspires students to gain real world knowledge, occupational experience, and 21st Century Skills to be the best business and community leaders possible.

In order to achieve this it is our mission to provide students with real world knowledge, career and technical skills, and occupational experience through project-based learning to enable them to lead with integrity and influence the future as productive and employable citizens.
