CTELogoBridgeMottoThe Mission of Career and Technical Education (CTE) is to provide students with the technical skills and academic knowledge needed to prepare them for future employment and/or a successful transition to post-secondary education. CTE Pathways show students a direct connection between doing well in high school and being able to transition smoothly to post-secondary opportunities or getting a good job when they graduate. CTE offers a wide variety of courses at the junior high and high school level. Many of our high school CTE courses offer Concurrent Enrollment (CE) credit through Utah colleges and universities.

The workplace in our country has become increasingly more dynamic and demanding at a phenomenal pace. Knowledge and skills that are useful and marketable today may be completely obsolete before the end of the year or even sooner. For this reason, the students of today need an education that is not only rigorous and relevant, but one that prepares them to advance in a career.

CTE training is vital. Nearly one-third of the fastest growing occupations will require an associate’s degree or a post-secondary vocational certificate, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics. Employers will be hiring more people with technical education than any other group. In addition, the fastest growing job categories in the United States will be technology related. In Utah, a coalition of business and education leaders have a vision for educating our youth to revitalize Utah's economy. Check out the web site at Prosperity2020.com and learn why Education is the key to Utah's prosperity.

CTE offers students the opportunity to learn from extremely well qualified, professional instructors in a contextual setting using up to date, “real world” technology. CTE continually works at building collaborative, articulated programs with post-secondary educational institutions to increase the educational options for our students. A majority of our programs have state administered competency tests associated with the course of study. Our goal is to consistently score above the state average in every program area.

Student leadership opportunities along with local, state and national competitions are available through our CTSO's (Career and Technical Student Organzations).

Work Based Learning (WBL) opportunities are provided to qualified 12th grade students. After completing a Critical Workplace Skills independent study course, apprenticeships and/or internships are available at local businesses, medical facilities, schools, and government entities.

A nontraditional career is any occupation in which women or men comprise 25 percent or less of its total employment. Our teachers and counselors work to enhance awareness about nontraditional careers and dispel stereotypes and myths about these careers.

We believe in our students, support our teachers and constantly look for ways to improve our programs!

The Weber School District CTE Department is committed to excellence in education!

Attendance Tips

For more on school readiness, visit attendanceworks.org and reachoutandread.org

Did You Know?

  • Starting in kindergarten, too many absences can cause children to fall behind in school.
  • Missing 10 percent (or about 18 days) can make it harder to learn to read.
  • Students can still fall behind if they miss just a day or two days every few weeks.
  • Being late to school may lead to poor attendance.
  • Absences can affect the whole classroom if the teacher has to slow down learning to help children catch up.

Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school—and themselves. Start building this habit in preschool so they learn right away that going to school on time, every day is important. Good attendance will help children do well in high school, college, and at work.

Help Your Child Succeed in School:

Build the Habit of Good Attendance Early
School success goes hand in hand with good attendance!

What You Can Do

  • Set a regular bed time and morning routine.
  • Lay out clothes and pack backpacks the night before.
  • Find out what day school starts and make sure your child has the required shots.
  • Introduce your child to her teachers and classmates before school starts to help her transition.
  • Don’t let your child stay home unless she is truly sick. Keep in mind complaints of a stomach ache or headache can be a sign of anxiety and not a reason to stay home.
  • If your child seems anxious about going to school, talk to teachers, school counselors, or other parents for advice on how to make her feel comfortable and excited about learning.
  • Develop back-up plans for getting to school if something comes up. Call on a family member, a neighbor, or another parent.
  • Avoid medical appointments and extended trips when school is in session.

When Do Absences Become a Problem?

Chronic Absence - 18 or more days
Warning Signs - 10 to 17 days
Good Attendance - 9 or fewer absences
Note: These numbers assume a 180-day school year.

Appropriate Use

Sign the AUP

Weber School District is committed to ensuring a safe environment for student and employee computer usage. The Appropriate Use Policy (AUP) governs the usage of the computers in the district. Everyone using a district computer is required to abide by the rules set forth in the AUP.

Key Points of the Appropriate Use Policy

  1. Your use of the computer should be appropriate to your role in Weber School District. In other words, your use of technology should be consistent with the educational and support responsibilities of your job (i.e. Teacher, Administrator and Classified Employee).
  2. It is both an AUP violation and a Class B misdemeanor to intentionally and knowingly access pornography from any Weber School District computer including laptops.
  3. All Weber School District web activity and email communication is filtered and logged. Consequently, Weber District users of computers and computer services should have no expectation of privacy in their use of these technologies.
  4. All Students will be monitored and supervised as they use WSD technology, including computers and computer labs.
  5. Violations of the AUP are handled aggressively and may result in suspension from school for students, and job actions (including possible termination) for staff, as circumstances warrant.
  6. Employees must exercise reasonable care to safeguard access to their computer(s) from other individuals including students. Passwords must be kept secure and changed as needed. Students must not be allowed to use the computer assigned for teacher use.

Appropriate Use Policy

The Appropriate Use Policy is the agreement between the district, the students, and the staff, and determines which computer activities are appropriate. Usage of the computers should always be appropriate to one's role in the district. Failure to adhere to the Appropriate Use Policy will result in disciplinary action.
