JELCC Canned Food Drive

CTE Week gives us time to reflect on the core values of Career Technical Education. 
Service Learning is a key component to CTE. JELCC students modeled this value as they raised over 1,000 canned goods to donate to a local MSDWT elementry school food pantry, Nora Elementary School. 

Nice work, JELCC students! We are proud of you!

CTE Week: Celebrate Today; Own Tomorrow

So, why do we celebrate CTE?
It's fun! 
And, CTE Increases Student Achievement!
Check out the Research:  
  • The more students participate in CTSO activities, the higher their academic motivation, academic engagement, grades, career self-efficacy, college aspirations and employability skills. 
  • Students at schools with highly integrated rigorous academic and CTE programs have significantly higher achievement in reading, mathematics and science than do students at schools with less integrated programs. 
  • CTE students are significantly more likely than their non-CTE counterparts to report that they developed problem-solving, project completion, research, math, college application, work-related, communication, time management, and critical thinking skills during high school.
