Career and Technical Education

Attention Parents of CTE Students

This summer, the Florida Department of Education has a unique opportunity to take a look at career and technical education as it is offered in the State of Florida. A short survey has been designed for the parents of public middle and high school students, which should take at most 10 minutes to complete. The survey will take a look at the child’s participation, experiences, and opinions on career and technical education programs like culinary arts, manufacturing, digital technologies and more. Parents can take the survey whether their child is in a CTE program or not. Responses will remain completely confidential. Names and other identifying information will not be requested, and all the results will be analyzed in such a way that responses will not be linked to an individual. The survey is accessible at the following link

Notice of Nondiscrimination for Vocational Education Programs

The School District of Indian River County's Career and Technical programs are  committed to a policy of nondiscrimination in employment and educational opportunity. The School Board will not discriminate nor tolerate harassment in its educational programs or activities on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex (including sexual orientation, transgender status, or gender identity), disability (including HIV, AIDS, or sickle cell trait), pregnancy, marital status, age (except as authorized by law), religion, military status, ancestry, or genetic information, which are all classes protected by State and/or Federal law.

The lack of English language skills will not be a barrier to admission or participation in the Career and Technical  Programs. The district may assess each scholar's ability to benefit from specific programs through placement tests and counseling, and if necessary, will provide services or referrals to better prepare students for successful participation.
