Career and Technical Education

LPS Career and Technical Education (CTE) builds a foundation of academic and technical skills so that students are aware of the diversity of career options available to them as they begin to prepare for post-secondary education or entry into entrepreneurship/employment to achieve their career goals.  CTE prepares all students for life by:

  • Learning through academic and technical skill development
  • Earning as productive citizens in a global society, and
  • Living as a contributing member of their community

LPS-CTE offers rigorous and relevant courses within career pathways (see LPS-CTE Planning Guide) as defined by the Nebraska Career Education model.  Extended learning opportunities are provided through career student organizations and business and industry partnerships.  Career and Technical Education is delivered through a variety of programs of study at each of our comprehensive high schools in the areas of Business/Technology/ Family And Consumer Sciences, Health Sciences, Skilled and Technical Science and Work Experience.  Specific course listings can be found under each discipline area.  Students from all high schools can also continue their study at The Career Academy for advanced courses, dual credit opportunities, and additional programs.
