Career & Technical Education (CTE) is supported through the Carl Perkins Consortium grant and the Chippewa Valley Youth Apprenticeship Consortium grant.

The current major emphasis of CTE includes College and Career Readiness, Academic & Technical Skills, Work-Based Learning and Leadership and 21st Century Skills through Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSOs).


Academic & Career Planning

Academic and Career Planning, or ACP, is a student-driven, adult-supported process in which students create and cultivate their own unique and information-based visions for post secondary success, obtained through self-exploration, career exploration, and the development of career management and planning skills.

The following information was taken from DPI ConnectEd:  June 29, 2015 issue.

The Department of Public Instruction has selected 25 public school districts to participate in the Academic and Career Planning (ACP) pilot during the 2015-16 school year.

These districts are expected to serve as models for the entire state. State law requires every school board to provide ACP services to all students, grades 6-12, by the 2017-18 school year.

ACPs are a part of the state superintendent’s Agenda 2017, which is focused on having all Wisconsin students graduate from high school college and career ready.

The pilot participants will implement ACP practices and processes, and will use various resources to provide students and families with information they need to plan academic and career exploration activities.

Within the pilot districts are 69 participating schools — representing elementary, middle, and high school levels; all 12 cooperative educational service agency (CESA) areas; and rural, suburban, and urban settings.

The ACP initiative will provide web-based software that school districts may use as well as guidance, training, and technical assistance on how to implement academic and career planning services.

“The academic and career planning process will help to support the great work already taking place in our public schools through our top-notch teachers,” said State Superintendent Tony Evers

Guidance and Career Development

The majority of good paying jobs will require education beyond high school. CTE programs emphasize career exploration and guidance to help students select courses for a smoother and more productive transition from high school.

Education for Employment (Standard M)

Education for Employment is one of Wisconsin's 20 school district standards referred to as Standard (M). Its purpose is to ensure that all students, regardless of career objective, are given the skills, attitudes, and knowledge needed for future employment. It begins as early as kindergarten and is infused throughout the K-12 curriculum.
