Career and Technical Education


Q. My child wants to enter a trade, such as plumbing or welding. How can he benefit from CCSS?

A.
Expectations should remain high for all students, regardless of their post high school plans. Mississippi has clearly articulated an expectation that all students graduate ready for post secondary AND direct entry into the workforce. Students not attending a four-year institution face equally challenging skills and knowledge requirements for successful entry into the workforce. All students should be prepared at high levels to thrive as engaged and productive citizens in our current economy.

Q. What resources are available for CTE educator to implement CCSS in classrooms?
A.
The Office of Career and Technical Education will provide training for CTE teachers on how to change teaching practice to implement CCSS in the classroom.
