DACC to Host Career Technical Education Day

Doña Ana Community College (DACC) is inviting educators, administrators and counselors to learn about the DACC Career Technical Education (CTE) programs at the annual CTE Day, Friday, Oct. 27. The all-day event will feature tours of the CTE programs, presentations about logistics for dual-credit, and a discussion about the current programs of study.

The event is free and open to all secondary and post-secondary teachers, faculty, administrators, and career guidance and academic counselors who are involved in integrated career technical education programs. Participants must register to attend, and lunch will be provided for registered participants.

According to the DACC website, the CTE Day will focus on connecting secondary programs to current post-secondary programs, which have been vetted by active industry advisory committees. The goal of the event is to develop career technical programs of study that: incorporate secondary and post-secondary education elements, include coherent rigorous content in a coordinated progression of courses that are not duplicated and align secondary education with post-secondary education to adequately prepare students to succeed in post-secondary education, assist students in participating in dual credit including understanding of college admissions, testing, registration, advising, and academic supports, lead to industry recognized credentials, a post-secondary certificate or associate degree, and lead to employment in high skill, high wage, or high-demand occupations.
