Does your school have a CTE inclusive Orientation? Is it stand-alone, an exploratory course, or something else?

We do something called CTE Exloratory for grade 9 students, in which they spend a week in each of our 15 CTE programs. By second semester, they can choose their top 3 CTE picks or simply go Academic.

Exploratory sounds like a no brainer. However… getting our scheduling dept to buy in is like (insert cute idiom) ain’t gonna happen.

Interesting. Can you provide more info? We just have "open houses" and individual schools will bring 9th graders in for a short tour and course demos.

Does anyone else struggle with accommodations and modifications for your CTE classes? I teach complex business classes such as accounting and management and I have a few moderate SPED students who can’t handle basic information and skills. They need almost constant reminders to stay on task, monopolize class time, and keeping up with IEPs, documentation, and contact requirements doesn’t allow me any time for prep work, planning, or grading. How do you keep up?

I'm looking for other CTE educators that teach the Education & Training Career Path. I'm curious as to how these educators structure and teach their classes under this cluster.
