ECS - Career & Technical Education

Career and technical education prepares students for a wide range of careers. 
These careers may require varying levels of education—from high school and post-secondary certificates to two-year and four-year college degrees.  Career and technical education is offered in middle schools, high schools, two-year community and technical colleges and other post-secondary schools.
