We mean business

CTE training places students in great jobs

In Red Oak ISD, we mean business when it comes to preparing students for the world beyond high school graduation.

That’s why we offer 84 Career Technology Education (CTE) courses ranging from computer maintenance to health services and welding. Students receive professional training and certifications that open doors to both the workforce and post-secondary study.

100% of ROHS students are required to take a career and technology course as part of their graduation plan. The courses offer valuable training to all students, ranging from those on the Advanced Placement track to those who struggle with academic studies.

Our CTE training is rigorous and strategically aligned with the needs of today's workforce. Red Oak ISD works closely with area employers to align the curriculum so that students graduate with the skills and certifications that best prepare them for the workforce.

For example, a student who works as a network and computer system administrator making a starting salary of $60,000 can choose to move up in that profession or finance a college education using that salary to pay for tuition and other bills. Either way, our high-level CTE training is one more way we live up to our motto:

“Our students’ success is our success.”
