Career & Technical Education  

The purpose of these web pages is to create an easy, succinct point-of-access to career and technical edcuation (CTE) information for educators throughout Kent ISD. We want to make this your first choice to find information for all of your CTE needs.

In addition to this website, we will continue to serve you with Technical Assistance and information. As our customers, we would like your input on building an even better site that serves you.

On January 25, 2017, we held a webinar to discuss State CTE Added Cost (6a.a.1) funding changes.  We recorded the webinar so you can view it and PowerPoint slides.
