Career and Technical Education (CTE)

Section 29.181 of the Texas Education Code requires school districts to provide a curriculum that affords students opportunities "to master the basic skills and knowledge necessary for managing the dual roles of family member and wage earner; and gaining entry-level employment in a high-skill, high-wage job or continuing the student's education at the post-secondary level." 

Section 74.3 of the Texas Administrative Code (TAC) requires districts to offer courses in Career and Technical Education (CTE) in at least three career areas.

Castleberry ISD offers Career and Technical Education programs in:

  • Business Education
  • Family and Consumer Science Education
  • Technology/Industrial Technology Education

Admission to these programs is based on the pathway students choose on their personal graduation plan.
