Career Technical Education
Career Technical Education (CTE) prepares students for a wide range of careers with the academic and technical skills necessary to succeed. CTE is organized at the national level, but allows students to gain hands-on experience in any number of career pathways. These career pathways present a wide range of related career options to students that can lead to a university, an apprenticeship, work in industry, or any number of other opportunities. By building their career awareness, students not only discover their interests and passions, but become empowered to choose the education pathway that can lead to more than financial rewards, but the satisfaction that comes from meaningful work. These careers may require varying levels of education, such as industry recognized credentials, post-secondary certificates, and two or four-year college degrees. In total, about 12.5 million high school and college students are enrolled in CTE courses across the United States.
For the 2021 – 2022 school year, there are 109 total approved programs in Lane County high schools with a 165 Lane County CTE Teachers. Click here for the complete list of CTE programs in each district. For more information and resources on Lane County’s CTE programs, click here.
McKenzie Sheds of Hope Project
The McKenzie Sheds of Hope Project has been a collaborative effort of 75 Lane County community groups, churches, businesses and schools to build sheds for McKenzie River area victims who lost their homes in the 2020 Holiday Fire. LWP helped to partner many local construction companies to assist in the shed build project and mentoring of high school students. A total of 143 sheds have been completed. 54 were built by 12 local high school. This documentary was created by several Lane County High School students to summarize these efforts.
