Career & Technical Education (CTE) Long Range Facilities Committee

Background

With resources allocated for CTE program planning in the 2017 Bond Program, in Spring 2018 the district launched a CTE Task Force to create a vision of a world-class CTE program for SBISD and develop actionable recommendations for achieving that vision. The Task Force presented its findings to Trustees in December 2018.

In Fall 2019, a 21-member CTE Working Group built on the work of the CTE Task Force to develop specific CTE Program of Studies recommendations. These recommendations were presented to Trustees in December 2019. With a defined vision for future CTE programming, in Spring/Summer 2020, district leaders, with support from Stantec architects, developed educational specifications to align with the future CTE Program of Studies. These were presented to Trustees in October, 2020.

The next step to bring to fruition SBISD’s vision for a world class CTE program is the development of a CTE long-range facilities plan to ensure students and staff have world-class CTE classrooms, labs, and facilities in which to teach and learn.

Committee Charge
