Do You Know Vo?
Douglas County School District’s Career and Technical Education (CTE) is your avenue for vocational education and career training
In January, each DCSD high school will release academic planning guides for the 2018-19 school year. The school’s counselor or academic advisor will then help students determine their course schedule and discuss available options from the hundreds of pages long document.
In order to help guide parents during this critical time, DCSD Parent University will conduct three regional workshops for Concurrent Enrollment and Career & Technical Education. The DCSD Career and Technical Education Coordinator, Sheri Bryant, will be presenting valuable information on vocational education programs and answering questions.
Many trade jobs currently go unfilled and many local companies are looking for high school apprentices to train in a variety of occupations. To reserve a space for a workshop in your area, please click one of the above links.
This is a perfect opportunity for parents to have vigorous conversations with their students about their academic path and the opportunities available through the Douglas County School District, including Career & Technical Education. Through CTE programs, students may receive industry certifications and/or college credit for free in a variety of occupations and programs.
