Career and Technical Education

Business Education, Family Consumer Science, and Technology Education work as a unified elective area.  These three departments provide students with the skills necessary to succeed in the workplace and in their personal lives.

The Career and Technical Education Department:

  • Provides a setting for students to integrate core subject matter
  • Heightens awareness of career opportunities
  • Prepares students for further certification and/or degrees
  • Orientates students to the Lake County Technology Campus
  • Embraces the 21st Century Skills movement and focuses curricular offerings around problem solving and collaboration

All courses in this area fulfill the one-half applied arts credit for graduation.
