Prepare for the future… Explore a great field

What comes to mind when you think of Career and Technical Education? Most people think of the traditional assembly lines, but today’s business and industry occupations are fast-paced and high tech. Companies, including those in this region are part of a rapidly expanding global economy and they need employees with high-level technical and academic skills to remain competitive. The high demand for people with these skills creates a great opportunity for you! Whether your goal is work or college following high school, Career and Technical Education can prepare you with the academic background, technical ability, and work experience to open the doors to a variety of career opportunities worldwide.

It is assumed that, through your career exploration experiences in the 8th grade, you have chosen a career pathway to explore and are now selecting courses in which you have an interest. This site provides descriptions of courses offered through the Copper Country Intermediate School District’s Career and Technical Education program. It should be noted that the courses described on the following pages are tentative offerings. The ability to offer any of the courses is directly related to the resources of the Copper Country Intermediate School District, sufficient enrollments, and availability of teachers.
