Lt. Governor, State Superintendent to Spotlight Career Education Progress

Visiting Anne Arundel’s CAT-North on February 6

BALTIMORE–Maryland Lt. Governor Boyd K. Rutherford and Dr. Karen Salmon, State Superintendent of Schools, will celebrate Maryland’s improving career and technical education (CTE) programs in a visit next Monday to Anne Arundel County’s Center for Applied Technology-North.

The Lt. Governor and State Superintendent will be joined by Anne Arundel Schools Superintendent George Arlotto, who will help lead a tour of the facility. Students and industry leaders will demonstrate technical equipment and describe the importance of high quality CTE for the State’s business community.

Maryland has placed a special focus on strengthening CTE. Governor Hogan last year announced the State’s first P-TECH program, which provides both secondary and postsecondary career training for students. In addition, the Hogan administration has launched “Apprenticeship Maryland,” a collaborative program involving MSDE, the Department of Commerce, and the Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation. More on Maryland’s CTE programs can be found at: http://marylandpublicschools.org/programs/Pages/CTE/index.aspx.
