           The mission of Career and Technical Education (CTE) is to empower all students to be successful citizens, workers and leaders in a global economy.
           CTE gives purpose to learning by emphasizing real-world skills and practical knowledge. Programs in Career and Technical Education are designed to contribute to the broad educational achievement of students, including basic skills such as reading, writing, and mathematics, as well as their ability to work independently and as part of a team, think creatively, solve problems, and utilize technology.

Tyrrell County Schools Career and Technical Education Remote Instruction Fall 2020

Tyrrell County Public Schools began quite differently this fall with all three schools going completely remote.  This type of instruction provides many challenges for educators, students and families alike.  In anticipation of these challenges, the Career and Technical Education staff began preparing for the possibility of remote instruction in July 2020.  CTE requires students to not only learn the content, but to physically demonstrate a number of skills related to careers and the various program curricula. 

The TCS Career and Technical Education Department will be implementing a variety of remote instructional strategies to provide each student the best possible skills based education during this first nine weeks.  Some of these strategies include:

 
Canvas and Google Classroom learning management systems
Google meet live meetings that are recorded  
YouTube videos
Teacher made “how to videos” and skill demonstration videos
Student paper packets delivered to homes
Flash drives with content and videos
Email communication 
Project kits
Variety of Apps, online programs and software (Adobe Exchange, Gmetrix, Quia, Remind  App, Google Poll, Kahoot)
 Home academic and wellness check ins and phone calls
 

It is very important that each student feels as connected to his or her teacher during this period of remote learning.  If families have any questions or concerns for CTE staff members, please feel free to call us at Columbia High School (2527968161) or email us. 

We are here to support our students and families in whatever way possible.

We look forward to seeing our students back in CTE Classrooms and Labs soon!
