CTE Program Overview
What is Career and Technical Education?
The Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs at Chandler Unified School District provide students with real-world skills in a wide variety of fields ranging from traditional vocational education programs to cutting edge programs. CTE programs are planned course sequences of high quality academic core content and technical skills, which focus on a specific career cluster and prepare students to successfully transition toward their career goal.
What are CTSO's?
Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSO's) are recognized as integral to the Career and Technical Education program. CTSO's provide a unique program of career and leadership development, motivation and recognition exclusively for secondary students enrolled in career and technical programs.
What are Dual Credit Courses?
Dual Credit Courses are select courses taught at the high schools by high school teachers that allow students to earn high school credit and college credit for the same course.
