CTE Assessments and Curriculum

Career Focused Education is committed to providing rigorous, relevant learning experiences for our CTE students. Collaboration between classroom teachers, learning consultants, and industry partners has resulted in an aligned curriculum which provides meaningful opportunities for students to become innovative, adaptive, valuable contributors to Michigan’s future workforce.
