SCOE Celebrates CTE Month Throughout February
Posted 2/10/23

Solano County school districts currently offer 24 different CTE programs that include 54 courses across 12 schools. Among those are aeronautics, agricultural mechanics, agricultural science, animal care, automotive technology, biotechnology, building trades, business marketing, culinary, dance, digital media, education, emergency response, engineering, floral design, hospitality, kinesiology/sports medicine, law, medical science, performing arts, public safety, video game design, video production, and welding. SCOE has created the Solano Schools CTE Directory to highlight the robust pathway offerings students have to choose from.


In Solano schools, CTE courses and college prep courses are not mutually exclusive. Many high school CTE courses satisfy the college entrance a-g requirements and some even offer college credit. Students in 10th-12th grades participate in CTE courses of interest as a way to explore a variety of careers. The CTE courses are hands-on, project-based, and provide core academic skills, technical skills, and employability skills like professionalism, teamwork, problem-solving, and creativity. Several CTE courses offer industry certifications such as OSHA, ServSafe, and CPR first aid, and CTE is also associated with lower dropout rates.


SCOE supports CTE programs and teachers through essential skills workshops that teach students about social media responsibility, teamwork, building resumes, and preparing for interviews.
