Career Directed Education

Calaveras CTE is an effort to help students and parents understand the importance of focusing on Career-Directed Education as early as middle school. Calaveras CTE is guided by the Calaveras Workforce Education Committee (CEWC).

Our mission is to support our schools in achieving the goal of preparing students to be Career and College Ready by investing in strong career and technical education programs, in collaboration with local and regional colleges and industries.

The new California Standards have raised the bar for schools to ensure that students are both career and college-ready. Our task now is to elevate and promote career awareness among our students at the same level that we promote college readiness. In achieving this, we are not only preparing our youth for careers, we are also responding to the workforce demands of our region’s, and our country’s, advanced industry sectors.
