Overview

Our mission:
The mission of Career and Technical Education is to provide students with technical skills, integrated activities, knowledge and attitude necessary for successful performance in a globally competitive workplace.

Career and Technical Education is an integral part of the middle and high school curriculum in Osceola County.  It serves to broaden the options for the future for those students who enroll in and successfully complete a Career and Technical Education program.

Our programs provide successful strategies that link educational reform and economic development.  While the measurable outcomes of these efforts are important benchmarks for school improvement and accountability, it is imperative that we, as Career and Technical Educators, recognize the importance of the skills that we are imparting to our students.
