We just wrapped up a fantastic February recognition of Career and Technical Education (CTE) month. Students and faculty at Murray’s secondary schools celebrated the year with several activities under the theme Get on a Pathway to Your Career.
Nationwide, CTE programs are designed to empower students with hands-on learning, skills, and experiences that prepare meaningful college and career opportunities. Our CTE programs give students practical experience through classroom instruction, hands-on laboratory work, and on-the-job training.
Murray High students can also earn a CTE Concentrator chord (for graduation) and a CTE Completer pin for specific courses in a CTE pathway.
In Utah, more than 172,000 secondary students participate in CTE courses each year that help them explore career options and develop occupational skills. The program represents a head start on pathways leading to well-paying career opportunities.
