SOESD creates career and technical education (CTE) pathways for high school students that teach practical skills aligned with workforce needs leading to college and careers in the high wage, high demand jobs that build a strong economy.
The program works closely with local high schools, community colleges, and industry to facilitate a federal Carl D. Perkins consortium grant and the Southern Oregon CTE Consortium. The CTE department services include Program of Study Approval, Instructor Appraisal and Certification, Professional Development, federal Carl D. Perkins grant administration, and technical assistance.
