MSDE Joining Washington County Schools In Celebrating Career Education

Visiting Public Service Academy, WCTHS on February 21

BALTIMORE — Maryland State Department of Education leaders will join staff from the Washington County Public Schools will celebrate Maryland’s improving career and technical education (CTE) programs in a visit to two WCPS facilities.

The visit is part of MSDE’s celebration of Career and Technical Education (CTE) Month throughout February. CTE Month places a spotlight on the important role that CTE programs play in helping students prepare for a successful future, and in helping Maryland’s economy grow.

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:
