Career and Technical Education
Career and Technology Education courses are designed to provide students with the skills needed to enter today’s
workforce. We provide students with rigorous and relevant instruction to help them succeed in our high-demand,
high-skilled working environment of the 21st century. Students apply academic skills along with their technical
skills in the CTE classroom. Career and Technology Education can provide students with a chance to explore
various career options and provide them with enhanced earning potential while continuing their education. Many
Hays CISD courses are articulated with Austin Community College which means students can earn college credit
while in high school at no cost to them. Our challenge is to stay relevant and current in our ever changing society.

CTE Goals
• Make teaching and learning relevant, hands-on and exciting for students. CTE courses integrate academics in
  rigorous, relevant and exciting ways.
• Base CTE curriculum on current industry standards.
• Provide opportunities for students to earn state and national industry standard certifications and licensure.
• Each program area will provide students with the opportunity to earn college credits through local or state
  agreements.
• Provide students with skills to gain entry-level employment in a high-skill, high-wage job and/or to continue
  their education.
