Career Technical Education (CTE) Program

Mineola ISD’s Career & Technical Education Program (CTE) exists to serve all students by helping them discover their own unique strengths and interests. Students are exposed to a unique combination of classroom instruction and placements in technical work environments where they can acquire new information, concepts, techniques and procedures related to their specific career interests.

Mineola’s Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs are committed to providing rigorous instruction that integrates academics in relevant and innovative ways to keep students interested and excited about their educational goals. CTE programs are designed to prepare students with high quality training and opportunities to continue on to institutions of higher learning and for workforce employment.

CTE Program Goals

¨To help students (and their parents) make wise education choices, based on the belief that schools should combine rigorous academics with relevant career education so that students see the “usefulness” of what they are learning,

¨For each program area MISD will strive to provide students with as many opportunities as possible to earn college credit through local and/or state articulation agreements and dual credit courses,

¨To develop and embrace partnerships with local businesses to provide students with advice and offer opportunities to participate in work-based learning partnerships and job shadowing experiences,

¨To provide opportunities for students to earn state and national industry standard certification licenses, where appropriate,

¨Curriculum will be based both on industry accepted standards and best practices,

¨Students will be instructed in the essential skills of job application, dependability, promptness, initiative, loyalty, honesty, integrity, responsibility, and the ability to work and get along with others.

Program Mission

To design innovative career and technical education programs in order to develop academic and technical expertise, as well as leadership and marketable skills with students in preparation for the challenges of post-secondary education and a globally competitive workforce.
