CTE Newsletter

Sumner County Schools

Introducing the new Career & Technical Education (CTE) Newsletter for Sumner County Schools

CTE in Sumner County provides students the opportunity to concentrate in a program of study in one or more of the 16 National Career Clusters. In 2014-2015, Sumner County CTE Concentrators had a 99.9% Graduation Rate!

CTE students have an opportunity to earn Dual Credit or Dual Enrollment hours with local postsecondary institutions as well as industry-aligned, Tennessee-recognized credentials (certificate or license). The purpose of this CTE Newsletter is to share the great things that are happening in Sumner County Schools CTE programs.
