Career & Technical Education


The Spring Hill USD 230 Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs are organized educational activities that offer students a sequence of courses relevant to technical knowledge and skills needed to prepare students for a smooth transition from high school to postsecondary education (technical colleges, community colleges, and universities), apprenticeship opportunities, the military, and/or to the workplace.

Tomorrow’s jobs will require more knowledge, better skills, and more flexible workers who continually update their knowledge and skills. The goal is to provide students with relevant contexts for learning through pathways to college and career readiness. These Career Clusters link what students learn in school to the knowledge and skills they need for success in college careers. KSDE recently released the following definition of college and career readiness as follows:

“College and Career Ready means an individual has the academic preparation, cognitive preparation, technical skills, and employability skills to be successful in postsecondary education, in the attainment of an industry recognized certification or in the workforce, without the need for remediation.”

The Spring Hill School District currently has CTE programs in Agriculture, Food & Natural Resources; Education and Training; Restaurant and Hospitality Services; Finance; Marketing; Architecture & Construction; Programming and Software Development; Web and Digital Communications; Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math; and Arts, Audio/Video Technology & Communications.
