Career & Technical Education

Learning By Doing!
Career and Technical Education (CTE) is about doing, students in our programs take what they learn and apply it to something relevant to real life experiences. Growing hydroponic crops, building robots, preparing a gourmet meal or extracting DNA are examples of the daily activities of our programs. Every program is hands on, and every program provides students the technical and academic skills they need to move forward in a career pathway. Each CTE program within the district leads to a certification or industry credential. In addition to teaching our students the technical skills for a career, our programs instill the employability skills that will make them successful in their future occupation. We are college and career readiness. CTE is preparing our students to become the highly skilled workforce of our community, state and nation. 
Student of the Month

Lane Medd of Casa Grande Union High School was recognized Tuesday, September 3, as the Casa Grande Union High School District’s Career & Technical Education Student of the Month during the district’s regular monthly school board meeting on Tuesday, September 3. Lane is a sophomore agriculture student in Mr. Casey Farnsworth’s Agriculture Education Program. Mr. Farnsworth nominated Lane because he always has a positive outlook on life, is always willing to serve, and does so with a smile. Lane has a passion for what he does inside and outside of the classroom and takes great pride in doing so. He shows livestock at the county fair, is involved in the program’s poultry enterprise and crop production, and is even willing to assist with projects throughout the summer break. Lane is serving as one of this year’s FFA chapter officers, is a fine example to his peers, is always willing to go above and beyond, and is simply a joy to have around. Lane’s parents are Val & Laurie Medd of Casa Grande. Over 1,800 students are enrolled in the fifteen Career & Technical Education programs offered in the Casa Grande Union High School District. Each month, a student from each program may be nominated for this recognition program.
