Student Organizations (CTSO's)

Benefits of CTSOs

CTSO Policies and Procedures

  •  This study revealed that CTSO members experience a higher level of academic motivation and engagement than non-CTE non-CTSO students. When compared to non-CTSO CTE students, CTSO members experienced higher academic motivation, career self-efficacy, and civic responsibility. Additionally, the report finds that female students and students of color get even more benefit from joining a CTSO.
  • This study examined public school administrators' perceptions of CTSOs. It found that 80% of administrators perceived CTSOs very favorably as being either mostly effective or very effective in developing student leadership skills, keeping students engaged, and improving student's technical skills and academic achievement.
