Career & Technology Education (CTE)
The goal of Dorchester School District Two’s Career and Technology department is for students to become “College and Career Ready”.
Students enrolled in CTE courses have the opportunity to explore a variety of careers and gain understanding of course sequencing in their selected pathway.
Students will have opportunities to gain these skills through rigorous classroom curriculum and standards, work-based learning opportunities, and opportunities to gain industry or professional certification in their field of study.
We are challenging our students to adopt a problem-solving mindset, experience state of the art equipment, and acquire skills to step into a successful post-secondary college or career life.”Stacie Elwood
