CTE Updates - Extended Closure

EDUCATOR RESOURCES

While nothing can replace the skills and competencies students receive in your classrooms, we can still continue to foster career awareness and self-exploration at this time of extended break.  The key is to connect with as many students as possible!  Reach out and let them know you are there.  Encourage them to learn something new every day and give them resources to do just that.
