Students and faculty across our district will join other across the nation during the month of February to celebrate nation Career and Technical (CTE) Month. This year’s theme is Opportunities for Career Success! CTAE Month provides Career, Technical and Agriculture Education programs across the country an opportunity to demonstrate how CTAE make students college-and-career-ready and prepares them for high-wage, high-demand career fields. Among the special activities scheduled are College and Career Readiness Week at Hart County High School and Hart County Middle School, as well as various career readiness activities at each elementary schools. 

“The activities planned over the next month will illustrate the rigor and relevance CTAE courses offer our students,” said Dr. Mark Crenshaw, CTAE Director for the school system and CEO of the new Hart College and Career Academy. “By partnering with the business community, CTAE programs are investing in students and providing them with the latest technology and skills that will prepare them to become successful employees and future leaders.” 

CTAE encompasses 94 percent of high school students and 13 million postsecondary students in the United States and includes high schools, career academies, community and technical colleges, four-year universities, and more. CTAE is a major part of the solution to myriad national economic and workforce problems, such as high school dropout rates, a weakened economy, global competitiveness, and massive layoffs. At a time when opportunity for employment is so critical, CTAE programs in every community are ensuring students are equipped with the skills to successfully enter the workforce.
