CTE Director at Coffee County Central High School, Richard Skipper, had this to say:
The Tennessee Department of Education has announced February is Tennessee Career and Technical Education (CTE) Month and will celebrate throughout the month by amplifying the role CTE has in preparing students for postsecondary success.
With an investment of $530 million, Innovative School Models (ISM) are an integral part of the state’s CTE work and are reimagining students’ daily classroom experiences in public middle and high schools across the state, representing 137 public school districts and 45 public charter schools.
