94% of CTE high school graduates found a job or moved into postsecondary education.
64% went on to college compared to 54% of all Idaho students.
93% of technical college completers found jobs or continued their education.
17 out of 20 of the most in demand jobs are associated with CTE pathways.

                                                 Technical Competency Credit
