Career and Technical Education

Douglas County School District offers a variety of Career & Technical Education (CTE) programming. Regional CTE programming is offered to ensure all high school students have access to quality educational programs emphasizing core academic content, Postsecondary & Workforce Readiness (PWR) competencies, technical skills, and seamless transition to further education or employment. CTE programming better prepares all students, including special populations, to meet the challenges of the workforce, economic development, and emerging occupations. 

State approved CTE programs are taught by Douglas County School District teachers who have received State CTE credentialing in their respective discipline and program. A list of CTE courses is available in each school’s Course Guide.
Students interested in regional CTE programs are required to meet with their high school Counselor to discuss CTE course information, requirements and availability, and to complete the District CTE Application process. 
*Students provide own transportation to CTE programs not offered within their home high school.
