Career and Technical Education (CTE) provides relevant, hands-on coursework for high-skill, high-demand, high-wage career fields with up-to-date equipment and technology, professional learning experiences, leadership and competitive opportunities, life and career skill development, opportunity for college credit, and connection to business and industry.

Technological advances and global competition have transformed the nature of work. Tomorrow's jobs will require additional knowledge, improved skills and highly flexible workers who continually update their knowledge and skills.

Shawnee Mission School District Career and Technical Education Pathways link what students learn in school to the knowledge and skills they need for success in post-secondary education and careers.
