techCTE Program creating excitement at Sisseton High School

Courier Staff Writer

Today’s cutting-edge, rigorous and relevant Career and Technical Education (CTE) prepares youth and adults for a wide range of high-wage, high-skill, high-demand careers. The program prepares students to be college and career-ready by providing core academic skills, employability skills and technical, job-specific skills. The CTE Program educates students for a range of career options through 16 career clusters, and Sisseton High School students are fortunate to have 8 of the 16 clusters offered to them.
According to the National Center for Education Statistics, high school students involved in CTE courses are more engaged, perform better and graduate at higher rates. 81 percent of dropouts say relevant, real-world learning opportunities would have kept them in high school. The average high school graduation rate for students concentrating, taking a minimum of 2 credits, in CTE programs is 93 percent, compared to an average national freshman graduation rate of 80 percent. More than 75 percent of secondary CTE concentrators pursued postsecondary education shortly after high school.
